The garden at 3 Balfour Cottages, Menmuir, will open to the public on Saturday, May 9, to raise money for charity.

It comprises various ‘rooms,’ containing myriad plants from potted herbs, spring bulbs and alpines in a raised bed, to a ‘jungle’ with a range of bamboos. Many other interesting plants include primula, hosta, meconopsis, fritillaria, trillium, allium, a large display of bonsai and auriculas.

The garden will be open from 1 to 5pm on May 9, with an entrance fee of £3. Accompanied children go free and dogs onleads will be allowed. There will also be a plant stall.

The event is part of Scotland Gardens open for charity days. Plant Heritage will receives 40 per cent of the takings and the net remaining will go to Scotland Gardens’ beneficiaries.
