“Magical gem of a Garden”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Fantastic colours to enjoy and savour. Even if you are not a keen gardener you will be gobsmacked by the display of Primulas and Azaleas.
A garden gem that should be seen by all.

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Visited the gardens after having read about it in the Peoples Friend magazine. We found the gardens to be in amazing colour and saw varieties of plants which we had never seen before. This was truly a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend anyone to visit.

“Spring Colour”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

We visited Branklyn on Tuesday, which (luckily) was a warm sunny day. The garden was looking magnificent, with lots of rhododendrons, azaleas, Himalayan poppies and other plants in full flower. The garden is big enough to take a while to explore (I think we took almost an hour). Altogether, a superb attraction.

“Colourful garden and friendly staff.”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Visited the gardens on Wednesday 29th May with a Lochs & Glens coach party. We were greeted by a lovely lady who explained about the garden. The garden was in full colour and there were so many interesting plants shrubs and trees. One of my favourite flowers is the cowslip I mentioned this to the lady who had previously greeted us, she very kindly gave me a gift of a flowering cowslip. The staff at the gardens are excellent, the gardens are interesting and full of colour at this time of year. My wife and I highly recommend a visit to the garden.
