Lesley Watson & Dougal Philip?s Garden
West Lothian, EH49 7ND
Thursday 13 June, 10.30am – 3.00pm
Garden tour and buffet lunch
Lesley and Dougal are both horticulturists through and through, making for a very informative and entertaining tour. They own New Hopetoun Gardens and are regular RHS Show Garden judges. Lesley is a former presenter of Beechgrove Garden on BBC Scotland and Dougal is Chairman of Perennial.
Guests are invited to enjoy an exclusive visit of their quarter-acre garden which overlooks the River Forth, where they will share the evolution of the grounds and offer up design tips. The garden is their laboratory and as their house sits in the middle, they require the garden to perform for them all year round.
They particularly value the links they have created between the house and garden by use of artefacts and plants in distinctive areas which flow into each other. A relaxed buffet lunch will be served with four different places to sit for optimum viewing pleasure at different times of the day. After lunch guests can wander around the garden at their leisure.
