St Bride’s Cottage Garden Open Day & Plant Sale

Date: Saturday 15 June 2024

On Saturday 15th June 2024 and Sunday 16th June 2024, St Bride’s Cottage garden will be opening from 1pm until 5pm for Scotland’s Garden Scheme at St Bride’s Cottage, South Kingennie, Broughty Ferry, Dundee, Angus, Scotland, DD5 3PA. This half-acre garden was started from scratch in 2002 and now provides year-round interest. Planting several trees and making a wildlife pond and stream were the first priorities, as birds were sadly rare visitors to the garden. Parts of the perimeter of the garden are left semi wild with dense shrubs to provide cover and nesting areas, while the area visible from the house is planted for viewing, with a mixture of shrubs, perennials and bulbs. Some features are inspired by visits to gardens around the world, including a Japanese-themed area with island bed. There is a small bog garden with a lovely early summer display of Iris sibirica and many plants justify their existence by attracting a wide variety of bees and butterflies. Directions: From Kellas take the minor road signed Murroes Church for approximately one mile to some steading houses and turn left up the farm track immediately before them. St Bride’s is the first house on the left with the conservatory and solar panels. For more information, please click here.
