Holehird Gardens in August: 3 things to look out for when you visit:
- Visit the Paddock to see the long border of agapanthus planted against the stone wall. Among the many vibrant varieties, look out for the intriguing 'Silver Moon' with its variegated foliage and delicate flowers.
- One of the more recently created beds at Holehird, the Buddleja Bed has come into its own this summer. Among the familiar plume-shaped panicles, the round yellow flowers of Buddleja globosa are a real surprise.
- The Hydrangea Beds are one of the glories of Holehird in summer. Interesting varieties abound, but one to seek out is the delicate white-flowered H.paniculata 'The Swan'.
