Gigha susan/june

A walk in the gardens June 2006





The good spell of weather at the beginning of the month – warm and sunny with a drying breeze was probably not the best weather for the Rhododendrons. Though they flowered magnificently the blooms did not last as long. There were still many flowering including Rh.yakusimanum in the walled garden. It was just beginning to flower when I first saw them this month but I decided they were not out enough for a good photograph. When I returned to capture them on camera they had already gone past their best! But there were others looking their best for the camera, Rh. Rosy Fido and Rh. crassum among them.

Many other species of plants beside Rhododendrons are now flowering. In the walled garden there are many Clematis amongst the other plants clothing the walls. Clematis Vyvyan Pennell is a double blue variety.

Beschorneria yuccoides with its magnificent flowers flanks the door leading to the back road, spring bank and the viewpoint. Wisteria and Schizophragma clothe the back walls of the old stables, now used as tool sheds potting sheds etc.
In the north walled garden many shrubs are flowering. These include Jovellana and Deutzia. Elsewhere in the gardens there are Viburnums and Olearias and many evergreen azaleas. This one is May Queen.

Candelabra Primulas in pink/red orange and yellow are flowering in various parts of the gardens and other herbaceous plants are flowering too.

Achamore garden is not just a rhododendron garden. There are many other plants to be seen all through the year! I have many other photos but there is not room for them all here, besides the plants are best seen in for real. So come and see them!
