When you visit Logan Botanic Garden you sometimes have to pinch yourself to remember you are still in Scotland! The garden benefits from an extremely mild climate and has a very effective shelter belt which help protects from the strong winds. There was much to see: A stunning walled garden complete with tree ferns and palms;
A woodland walk and a stunning new glasshouse
But the mild conditions allow a different selection of trees, shrubs and perennials to flourish.
The Echium nervosum with their tall stems of blue flowers were stunning and a target for bees.
The under planting in the walled garden brought some stunning colour into the garden including things like: Europys pectinatus and Xerochrysum subundultum.
The woodland garden planting included Bottlebrush (Callistemum salignus)
and a red carpet created by Rhododendron Grenadier.
Logan’s location means you have to make a special effort to visit. But it is well worth the effort.
Two lakes provide a stunning focal point forming the heart of the garden with paths encircling at a lower garden walk and higher woodland walk.
Another inspiring day.
