Loch Leven Garden
Lock Leven is a garden of National Significance, award 5 stars by the New Zealand Garden Trust.
The three acre garden has evolved over the last 31 years and is still evolving. Large borders are filled with a rich array of plants including roses, rhododrendons, shrubs, perennials, hostas, irises and peonies. You will see oaks, ashes, elms and silver birches planted throughout a large expanse of lawn and garden to give shade and tranquility. A dry-stone wall garden has been planted with silver and grey plants. A more naturalistic planting of natives and grasses on the outskirts blends well with large rocks and wire art. A summerhouse adds tranquility. Numerous old bricks have been used to path areas. Raised pottage vegetable beds and a small espaliered fruit tree orchard are very productive and attractive. Spectacular views of Mt Lyford and the Lower Peaks range can be viewed from the garden. The nursery provides a wide selection of plants the owners propagate.
