Outing to the Plant Explorers and Branklyn NTS Gardens

Posted on

Friends of the Botanic Gardens Annual Outing this year will be to the Plant Explores Gardens and The Branklyn NTS Gardens in Perth.

The coach will depart Glasgow Botanic Gardens in the morning first arriving at the Explorers Garden in Pitlochry. Guests will have the chance to experience the wonderful woodland garden which celebrates the stories and results of Scottish Plant Hunters. The coach will then travel to the Branklyn NTS Garden which features two acres of magnificent garden, set on the side of Kinnoull Hill overlooking Perth. Branklyn holds an impressive collection of rare and unusual plants. This attractive garden, a haven of peace within walking distance of Perth, was developed by John and Dorothy Renton with the help of seed collections from plant hunters such as Forrest, Ludlow and Sherriff.

Transport will leave from the front of the Kibble Palace at 8.30am at a charge of £18.00 per person for the transport only. Pay your own entrance fee on the day. Friends may wish to bring a packed lunch. Alternatively, light refreshments can be purchased at the adjacent Pitlochry Theatre.
