Took a trip down to Evergreen garden centre this afternoon. It was a cracking day and I love visiting this place whether to buy or just browse. The situation is beautiful and I can't for the life of me understand why people go to places like superstores to buy their plants when a place like this exists on their doorstep. It's near Wellbank, just a few miles north of Dundee and it's owned by two guys who are real enthusiasts and experts.
I think it's been up and running for at least 12 years now. I remember going when it was tiny, but it's expanded over the years. The guys are free with their advice and always happy to discuss plants and problems. Their prices are very reasonable but most importantly their plants are always in great condition, as you can see from the top pic.
Just as you approach the garden centre you cross this wee bridge and these are the views from either side of it. Marginally better than the view from B&Q's car park I think.
The centre is situated just to the right of the two trees on the right of this pic and overlooks this BURN!
An added bonus was this butterfly, very early in the year for them in these parts, but I don't think I've ever seen one of these before. Maybe someone can enlighten me?
