Synopsis
A natural wildlife haven in the Scottish Highlands. The borders are filled with perennials and deciduous shrubs and Chris has used the rocks and boulders, with which the garden is strewn, to create large rockeries. The acidic soil at Craigmore Mill is perfect for a whole range of acid-lovers, including giant cowslips, candelabra primulas and Himalayan poppies which suits the couple who both prefer to work with flowering plants that are as close to the natural forms as possible. The Aultmore Burn feeds the pond before it continues on into the river Spey where a wide range of bog plants now thrive. Chris is rarely alone when enjoying working in the garden and she frequently observes visits from red squirrels, pine martens and otters. Birdlife is also frequent and diverse, an osprey wheeling through the sky above can sometimes be spotted.
