The 65-acre woodland garden at Dawyck is a botanical delight in springtime. The Garden, nestled in the picturesque Scottish Borders, is renowned for its displays of bluebells, rhododendrons, azaleas and blue poppies. As the swathes of snowdrops that carpet the banks of Scrape Burn begin to fade, other plants burst into life. A woodland walk, among some of Britain’s oldest and tallest trees, is rewarded by the sight of fresh green beech leaves and the magnificence of the early flowering rhododendrons including the stunning Rhododeron strigillosum and Rhododendron oreodoxa. The historic Azalea Terrace is a blaze of vibrant colour when the azaleas flower in May and early June. Meconopsis, a Himalayan native, thrives in Dawyck’s conditions. Masses of blue poppies are to be found under the tree canopy in late spring.
