Green, green Glasgow. Today we focus on the gardens and green spaces of Glasgow. Although Glasgow is famous for its green spaces, weve included a few of the citys hidden gems.
- For the budding botanists out there this stunning grotto-like glasshouse, normally hidden behind the scenes at the Botanic Gardens, cannot be missed. The filmy fern house contains a collection of beautiful rare ferns including specialised filmy ferns from New Zealand. Set in an extremely impressive landscaped glasshouse environment.
- Nestled within Auchlinlea Park, explore the rare collection of buildings and walled courtyard thought to have medieval origins. Extensive and varied gardens surround the historic buildings including a formal walled garden, extensive shrub and herbaceous plantings, a woodland garden and a bog garden which in itself is a recognised site of importance for Nature Conservation.
- Rosshall Park features beautiful gardens and woodlands, with the only listed rock garden in Scotland, making it one of Glasgow’s best kept secrets. Join the Village Storytelling Centre as they explore the park and its history which dates from the 13th Century. From the listed rock gardens, to the grottos and to the lilypond complete with subterranean boathouse, there is a treat to explore round every corner during this very special tour.
- The charming red brick building is found at the end of a cobbled lane, discretely sheltered from the bustling activity of the city’s west end nearby. Converted in 2001, using the same style brick, many of the original features have been retained. Coach House Trust is a voluntary organization which aims to promote social and economic inclusion, come along and visit the Horticultural services operating at the Coach House 84 Belmont Lane.
