The Garden Guide

Holehird Gardens

A horticultural woodland garden, stream garden, walled garden and rock garden run by members of the horticultural society. There are Alpine and Tufa Houses. It has a fine site with a natural stream. William Groves, the former owner, sponsored plant collection expeditions to the Himalayas. The gardens hold National Collections of Astilbe, Hydrangeas and Polystichum ferns.  Holehird's design character is somewhere between that of the Mixed Style and Arts and Crafts Style.
