PGG visit to Cambo and Wormistoune Gardens

Cambo
Cambo’s 2.5 acre walled garden dates from the 1800’s and our visitors keep describing it as ‘stunning’! We endeavour to create areas of year round interest and the garden is constantly changing, developing and innovating through the passions of our horticulture team.  From early interest in our winter gardens (highlighting our Plant Heritage national collection of snowdrops) through to our late season naturalistic plantings and prairie garden (unique in Scotland!) there is always a reason to visit Cambo.

From August our double herbaceous borders are reaching their flowering peak in rich reds, purples and blues. Our annual potager provides a place for experimentation and planting innovation – often flowering from August right through to late November.

A contemporary cutting garden is in development, and our edible garden and orchard provides produce for the café and shop.

Wormistoune House
The ongoing restoration and transformation of this ‘pocket’ estate’s 17th century Scot’s tower house and gardens continues to evolve and delight. Within the walled garden, imaginatively clipped yew hedges enclose ‘rooms’ filled with luxuriantly planted herbaceous borders, a productive potager garden, wildflower meadows, an intricate box parterre, water features and a magical shade garden which is home to four of Scotland’s largest Griselinia littoralis specimens. In recent years planting has extended into the wider woodland policies and highlights include a new Nuttery (inspired by Sissinghurst), extensive wildflower meadows and waterside plantings surrounding an impressively landscaped pond.
