Over the past few months, during the lockdown period, the gardening team at Brodick have been working hard in the walled garden, to ensure that it’s ready for the return of visitors.

A large amount of renovation work has been carried out in the upper walled garden over recent years and this continues to develop and settle in.

To celebrate the reopening of Brodick Country Park and our gardens, and to whet your appetite, we’ve picked five plants that will be looking really good in the walled garden this July. Click on the pictures below to find out a little more.

We’re really looking forward to welcoming you back – please remember to check opening times on our website before you visit. The garden and country park will be opening Thursday–Monday (closed Tuesday and Wednesday) from 6 July onwards.
