In 1914 because of the outbreak of the First World War a number of Belgian refugees arrived in Britain. Several thousand of them found their way to Newcastle where John HB Noble (1865-1938) lived and worked. He put some of them up on his estate at Sandhoe and some came with him to Ardkinglas in the summer and at Christmas.

Spring at Kirklands

May 16th, 2021 - May 16th, 2021

When we arrived at Kirklands over 40 years ago there were one or two established rhododendrons. Since then we have added a few every year. Dwarf ones on the rockery and larger ones in the woodland garden. All purchased from Gendoick of course, all fully hardy and chosen for our climate in west Fife, which can be more harsh than other parts of Scotland. We have tried to extend the flowering season from February onwards to give a colourful display throughout the spring and summer, but especially in April, May and June. Unfortunately, occasionally some of the early flowering ones do suffer from frost damage, but they’re still worth growing. In May they are surrounded by bluebells, Meconopsis, Trillums and Hellebores. The range of colours never ceases to amaze us every year. Well worth a visit!
