Take in the ever changing beauty at Threave Garden in support of Scotland’s Gardens.
Threave is the home of the Trust's School of Practical Gardening. No two visits to Threave will be the same as the garden is constantly evolving and developing its beautiful character. There is quite simply something for everyone at Threave!
The grounds are made up of different habitats that lend themselves naturally to beautifully varied garden styles. It has spectacular daffodils in spring, colourful herbaceous borders in summer, and striking autumn trees. There is also a working lush walled garden, an orchard stocked with authentic regional varieties of fruit, rose garden, a heather garden, temperate glasshouse collection, rock gardens and water features including a cascade.
The woodland garden is one of the most attractive and tranquil places to visit. Visitors can enjoy glimpsing plants from all over the world in the dappled shade while birdsong fills the air.
Enjoying lunch on the restaurant terrace is also a delight with the heavenly fragrance of honeysuckle and sweet peas growing alongside.
If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, explore the circular estate walk for a spot of bird watching and join the osprey watch near Threave Castle.
