Charity Garden Open Day: Fernlea Garden with Lisieux Garden
Fernlea Garden, Corvisel Road DG8 6LW: A secluded town garden of a third of an acre. It was created ten years ago to complement a new house. There are many rare and unusual trees and shrubs. Two herbaceous borders, one with hot colours and the other pastels. A Chinese inspired corner, small pond, fruit trees including a Galloway pippin apple and soft fruit. There is a greenhouse with a productive grape vine from which wine is made. The upper part of the garden is hidden behind a tall beech hedge where there is a summer house.
Lisieux Garden, Gilmour Terrace DG8 6HR: A small but colourful cottage style garden within an area bordered by high privet hedges and ancient rhododendrons. The bottom of the garden has several varieties of rowan and silver birch, and, most surprising, a 30 foot tall Sequoia gigantea (Redwood). The lawn is edged by deep borders with a wide range of shrubs, perennials, lilies and annuals such as sweet peas, misembryanthemums, cosmos, lavatera and sidalcea, etc. A
