Scottish Garden of the Season: Logie SteadingSeptember 30th 2016
Late summer and autumn are a glorious time of year …. mists and mellow fruitfulness, and the low sun casting a pinky glow across the garden at Logie.
The (partly) walled garden has evolved over the centuries, the changes being guided by the incumbents in Logie House. Formal hedges, annuals and large areas of vegetable and picking flower production have now been replaced by the maturing woodland garden. The burn has been re-established and the different planting areas and microclimates are now home to a wide variety of unusual perennials, shrubs and trees. The garden sits below Logie House and has a good view of the dramatic River Findhorn
The Cotinus, Acer and Euonymus trees all have their moment of glory, accompanied by stately late perennials and grasses. The caramel scent wafts from the Cercidiphyllum japonicum and the apples are in abundance. It is a wonderful time of year and never disappoints.
Plants from the garden are for sale in the Logie Steading Farm & Garden Shop – along with Longhorn Beef and Jacob lamb and venison from the Estate. Also at the steading is the Olive Tree Café, Arts and Crafts, Secondhand Bookshop, Antiques, Whisky and Wine and much more.
