Inverewe Gardens are on the west coast of Scotland.Osgood Mackenzie's plan to create a garden from windswept moorland on a rocky peninsular beside Loch Ewe raised a few eyebrows in its day. His vision is still astonishing today, with some of the world's largest - growing trees planted into holes hewn out of bedrock. He chose his site well. The garden is nurtured by the warm currents of the North Atlantic Drift, and is set amidst some of the country's finest scenery. Over time a kaleidoscope of exotic olants has been cultivated, giving colour and interest throughout the year - a plantsman's paradise with Chinese rhododendrons, Tasmanian eucalypts, Himalayan blue poppies, New Zealand daisy bushes, Chilean lantern-trees, Californian dog's-tooth violets, South African bulbs, Mediteranean rock roses, and many more besides.
