Lady Lucy Bourne’s garden from 1937 was the first to open regularly to the public. Her skilful combination of formal and naturalistic plantings, stone terraces, island beds, winding paths and bluebell wood, had a great influence on other Elgin gardeners such as Kathleen Murray and Maisie Knox-Shaw. Although not many plantings remain, some cherries sent by Cherry Ingram still survive, as do many interesting trees, and the famous Judas tree has left descendants.
