Favorite garden

First time here in April. Fantastic rhododendron in full Bloom. The gardens have been revitalised with even a tea room in the main building. I will be back soon.

Stumbled across this jewel on Sunday. Well maintained, lovely walk along the riverside and very peaceful. Will definitely be back throughout the year to watch the gardens change throughout the year.

My absolute favourite garden! As a keen gardener this garden has something for everyone. It is a delight and would provide inspiration for anyone thinking of making a new garden, small, medium or large.

This is a little gem - go when the rhododendrons and azaleas are all out, and don't forget the himalayan poppy collection.

Visited Branklyn Garden during 2nd week of October. The garden looked wonderful with all the various Autumn copper, red & gold shades of the leaves, it really was outstanding (see the photos l have posted). The garden has many interesting plants & is beautifully maintained. Well worth a visit.

Visited in early September, so probably missed out on the main flowering displays. We'd like to re-visit maybe in June when there's more to see. The gardens are right next to the main Dundee Road which is very busy.......and very noisy, which detracts from the experience.

A small garden, so not too much walking involved to see round it all, but never the less still very beautiful with many paths turning and twisting through all the trees, lawns, flowerbeds, and shrubs - there's even a small stream and pond to add to the atmosphere of tranquillity, though the traffic noise from outside this haven does try...
