The Garden of Cosmic Speculation

Published: 10th May 2015

'The Garden of Cosmic Speculation' is the creation of landscape architect and theorist Charles Jencks, at his home, Portrack House, near Dumfries. It is a private garden, open to the public annually on the Sunday of the May Day bank holiday weekend. We had the privilege of visiting it this year on a very wet day, but it was still spectacular. The shapes, vistas and planting are stunning and the detail of the individual areas is exciting and awe-inspiring. Dumfries has other beautiful gardens in the area and I would recommend a weekend visit if possible. Details can be found for this garden and others nearby on the website
