Scottish Garden in the Fall

Thursday, October 22, 2009

This morning, I paid one of my periodic visits to Greenbank Garden, about six miles south of Glasgow. The house and garden date from the 18th century and there is always something here to appreciate, right through all the changing seasons. The walled garden may have been originally designed for growing fruit and vegetables. There is also an upper garden with lawn and avenue of formal yew trees.

The soil at Greenbank is heavy clay but over the centuries has been extensively worked and is now able to support a wide variety of plants.

The videos below reveal some of the thirty different enclosures leading into one another, separated by dense borders and hedges of yew or privet.

Overall, a pleasant and peaceful place which is open to the public for most of the year.

This image shows the Green Man at front of the house.
