A project to create an innovative rainbow garden in a picturesque estate on Royal Deeside has received press coverage in the West Lothian Courier.
The project, which will see the insertion of more than 1000 new plants to the gardens, is being designed by award-winning West Lothian gardener Billy Carruthers.
His designs will see the gardens at Inchmarlo, 18 miles west of Aberdeen and close to the Royal Family’s summer home at Balmoral, in colour all-year-round.
The article, headlined Top gardener’s challenge, tells how Carruthers was chosen by estate owner Professor Charles Skene because of his outstanding reputation in gardening circles and the fact that he is a seven-time gold medal winner at the Scottish Garden Show.
The gardens date back to the 16th century and now surround the Inchmarlo Continuing Care Retirement Community where residents and homeowners can enjoy the scenic estate throughout the year.
The gardens are open to the public every year under Scotland’s Gardens Scheme with 60 per cent of all revenue being donated to Alzheimer’s Scotland.
