Cambo Gardens

Whatever you look for in gardens, you are sure to find it in this iconic Victorian walled garden with a modern twist  –  inspirational planting schemes designed by Head Gardener, Elliott Forsyth, unusual plants (to see and buy), somewhere beautiful to while away an hour or two, an all seasons plantsman’s paradise,  woodland walks by a sparkling burn leading to the sea.

Seasons

Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter

Our  Snowdrop Festival begins in February, Tulip Festival in May and our Rose Festival is  in July but there is even more to see!  Our walled garden offers stunning summer colour every year.  Our Ornamental Potager , a flamboyant flight of fancy created with vegetables, fruit and flowers is not to be missed! Our new North American Prairie garden is home to 100’s of grasses.

History of Cambo Gardens

What’s Hot Now?

Summer

Let the scents of summer enfold you along the lilac walk, marvel at incredible
rambler roses cascading over massive trees, or more gently festooning wires,
ropes and trellises – old-fashioned, historic roses galore create Cambo’s
Celebration of the Rose.

Meander through shoulder high borders, stumble across artists creating their
version of the sights they behold, hide away in a secluded corner.
