Organic Open Garden - Menmuir, Angus

With our thanks to Geraldine & Rod Stenson who are kindly opening their organic garden

Opening by arrangement until Autumn this year

Description: The garden is 2/3 acre and sits at 500ft on open hillside, so wind protection is a priority and plants have to be hardy. Projects this year include fruit and veggies, pleasure garden, polytunnel and some herbs … all work in progress.
