In Summer the subtleties of Spring have shot their bolt and are retiring! The majestic trees are in full leaf and therefore under planting can now relax.
Rossie has a summer garden, within a yellow yew hedge area. Here we have a mediterranian Summer garden concentrated on late flowering plants, agapanthus, roses, clematis, lilies and anything else that goes with my palette of blues and deep pinks and purple.
Wandering around Rossie you will spot a small heard of Castlemilk sheep and a growing number of Red Squirrels, beautifully captured here by John Bushell.
Rossie sits in the Earn valley overlooking the Ochils to the South and the Earn river to the North. It benefits from a sheltered position from the South West prevailing wind. The house dates from 1657 and many trees were planted during this time.
Although not the best time to risk a visit, Winter can present some of our most magical moments in the garden. Catch the right Sunny frosty morning and we would love to share this festive experience with you.

Look out for the 10 foot tea pot and the yew table ready for the Mad Hatters’ tea party!
David & Judy view the trees at Rossie as the orchestrators of the garden, the double basses! All the planting under this back drop has been sympathetic, subtle planting of trees and shrubs; and a plethora of woodland bulbs.
Head gardener, Judy has been “learning on the job” for numerous years.
She has had support from numerous gardeners, workaways, her husband David and more recently some grand children too.
From snowdrops to hellebores then trillium and bluebells, flowering shrubs, roses and an abundance of water loving plants, this garden’s interest goes on through to the magnificent autumn colours.
However, there is simply nothing to surpass wonderful trees. Autumn is all about trees at Rossie. The large trees orchestrate the garden beautifully.
