Working in the Mairi garden

Mairi Garden Fountain

The fountain in the Mairi Garden is now working on all cylinders and transforms the Garden. It hasn’t worked properly since it was built (see Diary for 21st Sept.). It looks wonderful and she definitely has a happier smile on her face. The visitors love it and are stopping to admire it much more than previously.

The outer beds in the Mairi Garden have usually just had ground cover. This year all the beds have been planted up with perennial and biennial plants. We were putting in Alcea Crimson (let’s hope that they escape the dreaded hollyhock rust), Begonia Summer Wings, Gladiolus Traderhorn and Gladiolus Zorro. Other plants have been going in over the last four weeks so it is going to be completely different to other years. Can’t wait.
