Victorian Greenhouse

The Herbalist’s Garden in Angus

Disclaimer – this is actually my boss’s garden and I’ve been dying to visit after seeing it in a recent press article. Handily, our recent tour around Scotland made it the perfect place to pitch camp so we got to have a good look around.

I have both serious greenhouse and walled garden envy, and raised beds and polytunnel envy for that matter! In fact, this is precisely the type of garden I would love one day.

The physic garden is so interesting, everything is handily labelled so you can see what ailments the medicinal herbs can be used to treat. The pollinators must be going wild in here just now.

As if that’s not enough there’s woodland, a lovely lake, highland cows, pigs and chickens too and everything is organic.

    All that flat space is enviable. So is the meticulously designed infrastructure. There is plenty of space here, but it is so steep.

    1. Much as I would love that greenhouse, I don’t envy the maintenance of it, especially with all the storms we have in Scotland

        We use greenhouses for propagation at work, but I am glad we do not need them more than that. They are a lot of work! I do like well deigned and maintained infrastructure though.
