A new year and a new calendar of events.

By Garden

Welcome to a New Year and the roaring 20’s. At Teasses we are putting together a calendar of events for the next year so look out for events and activities which might be of interest. Check our Events Page and Facebook Page for further information.

The next event at Teasses is from the 1st Feb to 1st March (an opportunity to see behind the scenes when the garden is usually closed for the season). Teasses has joined the Discover Scottish Gardens Snowdrop Festival for 2020 which means for the general admission fee of £5 you get to see the snowdrops that carpet parts of the woodlands here. Gates open on a Wednesday from 10am to 4pm or dusk. Take advantage of getting to wander through the Gardens which are normally closed to the public at this time of year.

No need to book. Just arrived on a Wednesday from 10am to 4pm.
