Charity Garden Opening - The Carriage House

16th April 2024

Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

Set within the glorious historic Blair Polices dating back to the 1500s, at the Carriage House, the Borwicks have planted a beautiful new Arboretum. This continues to build on the vision of past generations of Blairs of creating a sanctuary of rare species trees. Over the past three years a collection of over 160 trees and shrubs has transformed a 10-acre field into a peaceful refuge with year-round variety and colour. Mown paths wend their way around providing different vistas and points of interest including the mermaids rescuing a girl carved by a local artist from the stump of a Portuguese Laurel. Look out for the 24-year old Wellingtonia _(Sequoiadendron giganteum)_ grown from seed here at Blair, an avenue of eight different lime trees which earned a _Queen's Green Canopy Award_, a _Metasequoia glyptostroboides_ 'Golden Dawn' and many other rare trees. To sit on one of the benches created from our own wood and enjoy the energies of the Arboretum is a special experience. The Carriage House garden, created from a field over the past 20 years and planted with many varieties of roses and mature shrubs, is also available for a wander. You are welcome to bring a picnic and we welcome garden societies and walking groups. This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
