Charity Garden Opening – Braco Castle
As much of you might have guessed, we love beautiful blooms and gardens and pride ourselves in our garden and grounds. This gives our care home residents such pleasure. There are so many beautiful gardens to visit in the Crieff, Stirling, Dunblane, Perthshire and beyond. Here is one with open gardens just now.
A 19th-century landscaped garden with a plethora of wonderful and interesting trees, shrubs, bulbs and plants. An old garden for all seasons that has been extensively expanded over the last 33 years. The partly walled garden is approached on a rhododendron and tree-lined path featuring an ornamental pond. Spectacular spring bulbs, exuberant shrub and herbaceous borders and many ornamental trees are all enhanced by the spectacular views across the park to the Ochils. From snowdrops through to vibrant autumn colour this garden is a gem. Look out for the embothrium in June, hoheria in August, eucryphia in September and an interesting collection of rhododendrons and azaleas with long flowering season.
