As you can see from the photo below box topiary is quite a feature of the walled garden at Castle Fraser, they don’t seem to have a problem with box blight – fingers crossed for them!
Aberdeenshire is quite far north so it takes the plants a bit longer to get going in the spring.
I absolutely love walled gardens though and I still miss the high wall that we had in our old garden.

There’s an unusual old sundial in the garden.
Despite Castle Fraser being fairly far north they are still able to grow fruit, thanks to the walls, and the apple blossom was just beginning to flower when we were there a few weeks ago, it’ll be looking great now I imagine.
