I go 5 or 6 times a month, every month it is open. I love it in every season, rain or shine. If the weather is really too bad, the cafe is a good place to hang out in, with a simple but inexpensive and decent menu. It's a place for big trees, grand views, lichen, unexpected discoveries, colours and shapes, fungi, ferns - the biggest and the smallest things can be found there. You won't find well manicured herbaceous borders, but you will find spectacular vistas of plants that love those conditions, which to some extent mimic Nepal. Go in May for the Azaleas and Rhodies, in February for the snowdrops, in autumn for the tree colours, and all the year round to come away feeling healed. And make sure you charge your EV at the podpoint which uses hydro electric power sourced from the burn that runs all through the garden.
