Saturday 15 May

Speakers will be:
Ken Cox, Glendoick Nursery on Walled Gardens of Scotland
Robert Grant, National Trust for Scotland on The Conservation of Walled Gardens
Paul Findlay, Castle Menzies on Restoring the Castle Menzies Walled Garden.

Bolfracks is an interesting garden which has been cultivated for at least 200 years, despite its unpromising location on a north-facing slope, it includes a walled garden and is now organic, as is the rest of the estate. Castle Menzies has a walled garden in the process of being restored. The purpose of the day is to consider issues related to the restoration or conservation of historic walled gardens.
