Glamis Castle Walled Garden Restoration project

Posted: 26/03/2013 at 18:44

For anyone who does know I and my friend Karen have got involved in the restoration project .
Karen and I go a Tuesday and a Thursday to volunteer.So if anyone is planning a visit over Spring that is if we see Spring or we may go right into Summer.
Come and see us up in the Walled Garden Project we are helping the fulltime staff to restore the walled garden .
We have been sowing seeds in the Potting Shed and prinking out seedlings in the Glasshouse.
Today we were hopeing to make a start with planting plants for the making of a herbaceous border.But on hold till weather changes.
We and all the country are in middle of a cold spell and yes snow .
Pretty to see but time to see Spring blooms and new born lambs.
What a pleasure today it was for me to see 3 deer and they stopped and looked at me camera was not at reach and the beautiful Highland Cattle.
If you have never visited the Castle and gardens if you come to Scotland you must

visit.
