Kirrie garden features in BBC series

The walled garden at Logie, on the edge of Kirriemuir, will feature on television as part of a BBC Scotland series.

And it played host to celebrity chef Tony Singh who was filming a segment for the show, On the Road 2014.

The garden, run by local herbalist Terrill Dobson, includes a large physic garden designed to help visitors learn more about herbal medicine.

It is divided into eight beds by body systems, such as digestive and respiratory health, and each herb is labelled with information about its actions and traditional uses.

On the Road 2014 is looking at events and activities across the length and breadth of Scotland reflecting what the nation is talking about and for next week’s series the producers decided to look for gardens that open for charity under Scotland’s Gardens.

Terrill said: “It was really exciting, and a bit scary. I received a phone call asking if I would be willing to have a celebrity chef cook in my garden using some of my herbs. I had to say yes.

“I love cooking and was dying to see what a famous chef would cook here.

“The chef turned out to be Tony Singh, complete with his beautiful red turban. He arrived and within minutes asked me what my hash-tag was so he could tweet about my Cardamom plants.

“The television crew spent that afternoon in the garden and Tony barbecued a delicious meal.

“They were all so nice and made the day so comfortable.”

The show featuring Terrill’s garden will be aired on BBC Scotland this Monday (July 14) at 7. 30 p.m. The Walled Garden at Logie will also be open for charity on Sunday, July 20 from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. Teas will be available as well as plants for sale. Money raised will support Trellis and Scotland’s Gardens beneficiaries.
