The stream was one of the features that attracted us to view Kirklands in 1977. We love our natural water feature. Beside the stream is an old well, probably Victorian Romantic period, fed by one of the several springs on the bank.
Another of the springs feeds the bog garden where Gunnera manicata reigns with primulas, astillbes, rogersia, darmera and flag iris competing for control.
Toby of Granada’s ‘My Beautiful Garden’ thought this was the most magical spot he had seen on his tour of Scottish gardens.
The bank above the bog garden is planted with rhododendrons including Rhododendron rex planted in 1980.
