Visit Glendoick Gardens 2023

Sat 1st Apr - 31st May
Open 9:00 to 16:00
Booking closed.

Visit Glendoick Woodland Gardens where Rhododendrons are in full flower. Glendoick Gardens are located between Perth and Dundee in the beautiful Perthshire Countryside.

Situated 1/2 mile behind the Glendoick Garden centre on the southern slopes of the Sidlaw Hills. The gardens are open in April and May.

Due to steep paths, steps and gravel, the gardens are not suitable for wheelchairs.

You can see one of the finest collections of rhododendrons and azaleas, primula, meconopsis, kalmia and sorbus in our woodland garden, walled garden and nursery.

Many of the Rhododendron and azalea species and hybrids have been introduced from the wild or bred by the Cox family and the gardens boast a huge range of plants from as far afield as Chile, Tasmania and Tibet.

Three waterfall viewing platforms have been built in the woodland gardens. You can also take a glimpse into the fascinating world of hybridising in the walled garden where you'll find new as yet unnamed hybrids from the Glendoick breeding programme trial beds.

Peter and Kenneth Cox have written numerous books on rhododendrons and gardens. Kenneth Cox's book Scotland for Gardeners describes 500 of Scotland's finest gardens.
