Britain's Finest Gardens - Celebrating Capability Brown by Dinah Hatch

"Flashes of oranges, yellows and browns set the scene at Benmore Botanic Gardens, crouched in a mountainside spot on the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll. Enter the gardens via Redwood Avenue, a line of sierra redwoods planted in 1863 by wealthy American owner Piers Patrick and continued by subsequent owners to form one of the grandest entrances to a garden you will see anywhere. These gardens are known for their cultivation of species from Bhutan, Tasmania and the Chilean rainforest so expect to learn something new! Summer highlights for Benmore include late-flowering rhododendrons, magnolias and azaleas plus American snowdrop trees, Oriental Snowballs and the Epaulette Tree with its beautiful foliage and fragrant white bells."
