Gardens Worth Visiting, The Jarvie Garden.

Last weekend was the start of the Open Garden season, luckily, the Jarvie Garden was open the whole weekend, so although I had my own garden open on Sunday, I had the chance to see the wonderful garden of Marion Jarvie on Saturday.
Marion was, as usually very generous with her time, even though she was besieged with visitors all of them with many questions. They were also, like me, a little overwhelmed by the variety and scope of this amazing collection of plants.
At this time of the year there were many outstanding specimens and collections, most notably were Marion's own seed grown Hellebores selected from the best plants from the best growers. The results are extraordinary and unique to this garden.
The Jarvie Garden is open from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.
