The Italian Garden, Glamis Castle, Angus, Scotland

There are lots of woodland areas to walk around within the grounds of Glamis Castle, but there’s also a walled Italian garden. I love walled gardens, apart from the fact that the high walls protect the plants from the worst of the winter weather, they always feel so private and safe. Below is a view of the entrance to the garden.

Despite the fact that it was late September there was still plenty of interest in the garden, and quite a bit of colour.

There is of course a fabulous backdrop of mature conifers in the shape of the arboretum.

I’m truly glad that I don’t have the job of trimming all those hedges, they do look great though.

I believe the purple flowers are verbena. I did have one such plant in my garden but sadly it gave up after a few years so I presume they don’t like clay soil.
