April at Teasses

By Events, Garden, Teasses Estate

Can you believe tomorrow is April 1st?

We have had the most crazy weather up here in the last couple of days – after a wonderfully mild and sunny spell last week, this week saw the return of snow, hail and other wintery showers. The longer days and the plentiful daffodils on the ground, do however signal that Spring is starting to appear in our Gardens and we are very much looking forward to a busy season ahead with garden openings, workshops and event at Teasses.

April starts us off with our weekend opening on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd (10:00-16:00). Sunday is a particular special opening as we will open the garden with Scotland’s Gardens Scheme and our admission income will be donated to charity (50% via SGS to their supported charities and 50% to British Red Cross – Ukraine Crisis Appeal). So it is a great cause to come out and your tickets purchases will make a difference. If you are visiting us on Sunday we will also have a small Artists’ Market in the Walled Garden, so do come out and support your local craft-makers and small businesses. You can pre-book your tickets for both Saturday and Sunday here.

Another exciting appointment in the Garden will be our ‘Easter at Teasses’ event, which will take place on Easter Sunday, April 17th (10:00-16:00). Tickets for this event are already available via our ticketing partner Candide (book here) and we have lots of fun activities planned, as this is a family friendly event.

Our gardens will continue to be open on Wednesday (10:00-16:00) throughout April and don’t forget Garden Memberships are available for £18.50 here.

We are also very excited about our new Tea Room in the Walled Garden (Greenhouses) run by the lovely James. The Tea Room is open during every garden opening, so don’t forget to grab a cuppa and a slice of cake after your jaunt through the gardens (or before!).

We look forward to seeing you at Teasses this April!

Private Garden Tours

By Garden, Visits

We have had the pleasure to welcome quite a few small groups for Private Tours of the Gardens this Summer.

Each group is unique and we love the variety of visitors who take an interest in our gardens and book in this immersive experience, led by our Head Gardener Craig. Private tours are a lovely way to supplement the wonderful garden visit, with the knowledge of our Team – Craig will not only ensure you don’t miss any of the hidden spots, but will also tell tales of the history of Teasses, which stretches back all the way to Neolithic times.

Recently we had the pleasure to welcome Rita and her family, who organised a private tour to celebrate Diane’s 60th birthday. Diane is a passionate gardener so we made sure the experience was truly unforgettable – despite the drizzle!

Rita who writes the Gallery Tart Reviews blog, was inspired by the visit and wrote this wonderful post about our Gardens: read her post here.

Thanks Rita and see you back at Teasses soon!

Re-opening of the Gardens at Teasses

By Garden, Teasses Estate, Visits

Our Gardens have re-opened at the weekend and a what fitting way to celebrate #NationalGardeningWeek!

We have really missed having visitors and it has been a tough, long winter for all of us – it was lovely to see all of you who made it out at the weekend and we look forward to seeing many more of you in the months ahead. Our Gardens will be open 10am to 4pm, on Wednesdays and the first full weekend of every month.

Our new partnership with our friends at Candide Gardening means you can now also purchase e-tickets online, limiting the handling of cash and the issues with having to carry exact change. You can also easily upgrade your day ticket to a membership – it couldn’t be easier, thanks Candide!

When you visit our Gardens this Spring and Summer don’t forget to plan a stop at our Stables to see the newly opened Photographic Display “Teasses 25 Years”. 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the family purchasing the Estate and setting the course on their ambitious restoration project – we decided to celebrate this incredible achievement with a display of photographs, documents and memorabilia. “Teasses 25 Years” is included in your admission fee to the Gardens – we just love sharing Teasses’ story with you!

Next weekend opening: June, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th

Buy your tickets to the Gardens here and see you all soon!

Garden Diary 2021

By Garden, Uncategorized

Our monthly Garden Diary update with Head Gardener Craig.

Springtime has well and truly begun at Teasses, with lots of daffodils now visible all around the garden. Interestingly, Spring can actually start at different times, depending on who you ask! Looking at the astronomical calendar for example, the first day of spring is 20 March. The Phenological method records dates of reoccurring natural phenomena, such as flowering; for meteorologists, spring starts on 1 March and runs until 31 May. We are definitely loving Spring at Teasses and all of the colours it bring to the garden after the cold and snowy winter we experienced this year!

With restrictions in Scotland slowly lifting we are very excited to announce our Garden will be re-opening for visits from 5th May 2021. Our Garden will be open on Wednesdays 10am-4pm until the end of October. From this year you can also pre-book Garden tickets up to 1 month in advance via our new ticketing partner Candide.

See you all again very soon!

Spring Bulb Arrangement with Craig

By Garden, Workshops

Join Head Gardener Craig in preparing a lovely spring bulb arrangement.

With Spring officially in full swing at Teasses, our gardens are starting to fill with beautiful colours and fragrance. Our garden team have been extremely busy in the Greenhouse over the winter, growing all of these wonderful bulbs and protecting them from the hefty amounts of snow Teasses witnessed this year. With the Gardens currently undergoing some exciting changes, we are very much looking forward to welcoming visitors back from May to enjoy the fresh air and magical scenery at Teasses. We are also pleased to introduce a selection of Workshops run by our knowledgeable team on site this summer. If you are interested in knowing more about our workshop offer and to book your space, head over to our new section on our website.
