All of these exceptionally fine gardens will be at their beautiful spring best!
We'll visit the glorious Stordalen Place where, framed by a beautiful collection of trees, a series of garden rooms are filled with over 500 roses, shrubs and perennials.
In the romantic and tranquil garden of Aberfoyle you'll find gorgeous roses, swathes of perennials and elegant shrubs as well as lovely ponds and a swimming pool complete with waterfall.
At Sheriffmuir gentle curving beds and deciduous trees shelter plantings of bulbs, perennials and roses in delightful colour-cordinated swathes.
St. Mary's Vineyard features wonderful stone walls and a broad palette of Mediterranean plants including salvias, verbenas and roses cleverly combined with striking foliage highlights.
At Camawald you'll be delighted by the spring perennials and more than 1,000 roses as well as the Arboretum where indgenous and exotic trees shelter a collection of species roses growing in a natural environment.
The romantic Burchell Garden, where we'll enjoy our Melbourne Cup Day lunch, was created around an old dairy and limestone sheds. There's a delightful woodland and roses lead to an abundant vegetable garden with espaliered fruit trees.
And at The Barn Palais a formal framework is filled with a rich and diverse selection of wonderful plants. Rugosa and Delbard roses, areas of dry-climate plantings and a lovely bog-garden.
