Twas the Day before Filming

On the eve of the Beechgrove Garden team arriving in Ardentinny, late morning saw the Walled Garden volunteers unloading a small mountain of turf as well as a beautiful range of plants, shrubs and trees which will grace the Sensory Garden.

Construction of the natural stone Wishing Well is underway (courtesy of Stephen Johnstone and Ian Kerr) and the sensory beds are being prepared for the filming on Thursday and Friday.

Volunteers are welcome to take part in the programme, so do come along to Glenfinart Walled Garden on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday from 9am.
