Scotland’s Gardens Scheme Open Garden: Strathbungo Garden

About Scotland’s Gardens Scheme Open Garden: Strathbungo Garden

Nestled behind Glasgow’s busy main road artery to the Southside, you will happen upon a hidden walled terrace garden which marks the historical boundary to Strathbungo.

It’s an unexpected cottage-style city garden, showing how a piece of ground can be turned into a lovely colourful space for all the occupants of the terrace to enjoy. Inventive container planting is a key feature of this distinct urban retreat, which holds year-round interest. There’s a range of fruit trees, some of which are trained as minarettes and stepovers.

Why not visit Strathbungo Garden on Facebook and see what’s been happening in the garden over the past months?

Directions: From the south take the M74 to Junction 1A Polmadie. Turn left onto Polmadie Road, then turn right at the next traffic lights onto Calder Street. Proceed to Nithsdale Drive, then turn left into March Street where ample parking can be found. From the north take the M8 and join the M74, turn right into Polmadie Road at Junction 1A.
