Open Gardens Event - Wormiston House 13th September 2020
The Scotland wide open gardens events were cancelled this year but we are delighted to tell you that thanks to the generosity and kindness of the McCallum family, we have been offered the opportunity to arrange a one day open gardens on the 13th September 2020.
“The ongoing restoration and transformation of this ‘pocket’ estate’s 17th-century Scot’s tower house and gardens continues to evolve and delight. Within the walled garden, imaginatively clipped yew hedges enclose ‘rooms’ filled with luxuriantly planted herbaceous borders, a productive potager garden, wildflower meadows, an intricate box parterre, water features and a magical shade garden which is home to four of Scotland’s largest Griselinia littoralis specimens. In recent years planting has extended into the wider woodland policies and highlights include a new Nuttery (inspired by Sissinghurst), extensive wildflower meadows and waterside plantings surrounding an impressively landscaped pond.” Scotlands Garden Scheme 2020.
