Our Amuri Garden Tour is an overnight tour taking place on Thursday 27 October.
As well as discovering eight local gardens in the Amuri Basin – from formal and refined to extensive and colourful we enjoy Culverden’s iconic Christmas Country Fête .
Loch Leven Garden & Nursery Mike & Doreen Dryden
Mike & Doreen have developed their garden over the last 25 years, with many changes being made along the way. Hedges and topiaries give structure and formality to the house. The hedges are also used to propagate the thousands of cuttings that are grown and sold in the nursery and online. The borders are mixed with deciduous and evergreen shrubs, rhododendrons, roses, peonies and perennials. Virburnums and rhododendrons make a stunning display during October and early November, before the roses, peonies and perennials flower from mid-November to late December when the garden is at its best. Trees are planted throughout the large lawn to give a park like effect. Natives and grasses on a nor west fence line add shelter and interest to the garden.
A recent addition to the garden are raised vegetable beds designed and built by Michael. An in ground swimming pool and tennis court have been incorporated into the garden that give the family lots of relaxation and pleasure.
The small nursery beside the garden sell most of the plants you can see growing in the garden, and specializes in hedging plants.
