Black Isle gardens

How to take part


Another gardens project

Avoch and Killen Community Council have completed an ambitious virtual 'Open Gardens' tour with images and video of a wide selection of street planting and gardens in their area.  They invite donations to be shared between community council maintenance funds and NHS Charities Together.  You can donate  here .

Cromarty

 Hoping for a lot of plums
Currants, rasps, marjoram, wild flowers...there's some potatoes behind there
 I may regret taking in an Angelica plant, but the seed heads are beautiful

Culbokie. Lesley's pond was made in August 2018 as one of the Grow North workshops and has changed somewhat over the last two years. The solar panels work a small waterfall for a couple of hours a day.

We have lots of willow, important early food for bees
 
We planted a lot of trees, many fruit and nut.  A small plum in front of large gean (wild cherry)
Garlic, can’t have too much garlic
 
We do love flowers and mix native ones in where we can
The luxury of a polytunnel means overwintering salads and early seed propagation
Veg beds with some overwintered kales, new carrots with fleece
