Stroll through the garden and find ideas, techniques and inspiration for your own garden. You’ll discover a constantly evolving kaleidoscope of creativity – from mini-orchards through explosions of snowdrops to experiments in biodiversity. Greenbank has something to delight gardeners throughout the seasons.
Exploring Greenbank House, you’ll get a remarkable glimpse into the life of Robert Allason and his family. Allason was an 18th-century tobacco lord in the days when Glasgow was the second city of the British Empire and the house has remained virtually unchanged since it was built.
Wander through the gardens and enjoy the constantly changing melody provided by the ever-present splash of water from the ornamental pools and fountains. The woodland walk is a delightful jaunt at any time of the year, particularly in spring, when the daffodils and bluebells are in flower.
