Angus Fife Garden Trail 2015

trailMy herb garden will be included in The Angus and Fife Garden Trail – Scotland’s Gardens’ exciting new venture in their 2015 programme. Running over May and June, this year’s Angus & Fife Trail provides an opportunity to see 12 privately owned gardens, all different and several of which have rarely admitted visitors before. It also offers a very flexible way to visit the gardens whether you wish to visit the area and see all gardens in short succession (26-28 May and 2-4 June) or take the two months to see them all. The gardens can also be visited at different times of the day, with some open all day, some in the afternoon only and others in the afternoon and evening. Some include plants for sale, others the option of teas.  And all are opening to raise money for charity.  For more information see www.angusfifetrail.org.uk.
