One Hundred Years of Glendoick Gardens 

In 1919 Euan Cox went on an expedition to Burma with celebrated plant hunter Reginald Farrer in search of new and rare plants. When he returned to the UK, Euan began to transform the grounds of Glendoick House near Perth with Himalayan plants making a now famous woodland garden.

It was an inspired move in a south-facing, hillside setting and the gardens, created from the seeds of rhododendrons, conifers, perennials and bulbs that he had brought back with him, began to flourish. 


Today Glendoick Gardens, which straddle a fast-flowing burn, are home to an incredible range of rare species rhododendrons and from early spring until summer these, along with magnolias, camellias, swathes of Meconopsis, Primula, lillies and lots more.

Alongside the five-acre gardens is Glendoick Nursery, established by Euan and his son Peter in 1953, which has a world wide reputation or hybridising Rhododendrons and Azaleas, as well as an award-winning garden centre.  

Now Euan’s grandson, Kenneth Cox, third-generation plant hunter, nurseryman and best-selling gardening author, has plans to celebrate the centenary of one of this country’s most renowned woodland gardens 

  • A new guidebook to the gardens, Glendoick 100 - Guide book and history of Glendoick written by Kenneth Cox will be released in spring 2019. 

  • New Glendoick cultivars for 2019 will include: ‘Glendoick Chiffon a double white   evergreen azalea; ‘Glendoick Candyfloss’  a bright pink double azalea and ‘Tricia Cox’ a dwarf rhododendron with pink flowers named after Peter Cox’ wife and the founder of the successful Glendoick Garden Centre.  

  • Glendoick Gardens will be open daily throughout April and May and at 11am, on Sunday, May 5 and Sunday, May 12, Kenneth Cox will be leading guided tours of the gardens, explaining their history and development.  Tour tickets need to be booked in advance as numbers are limited. (buy garden tour tickets here)


  • A Glendoick 100 years display garden will be created at Gardening Scotland 2019  (Friday, 31 May - Sunday, 2 June - The Royal Highland Centre Edinburgh). The garden will feature many of the plants introduced by the Cox family and new hybrid cultivars bred at Glendoick.  


  • Glendoick 100 Years Lecture by Kenneth Cox, to celebrate the garden, its plants, wild collections, hybridising and woodland gardening. See Glendoick Website for details. 

Kenneth says: “The gardens have a rich history and the foundation that my grandfather laid down has been added to over the years by my father and myself. It is wonderful to be able to celebrate their centenary, to chart their progress and to plan for the next century.”
