I haven’t blogged about the Secret Herb Garden properly since we first went in 2014 (look at how blonde and chunky Milo was!), though it’s featured in quite a few Project 52s, so I thought it was about time to revisit it! They’ve really spruced up the greenhouse furniture now, gone are the holey sofas and armchairs, it’s now mostly newer bench type seats, and there’s new kids toys and decorations too. Plus there’s a lot of new things on the site – a bee hut, a story cottage, chickens, some new gardens, another couple of bits of seating, and of course the beetle and the taxi you can play in. Perfect place to visit if you find yourself with a couple of hours to spare during which to entertain the kids, or for an alternative coffeeandcake stop after an ikea visit!
The Secret Herb Garden is at 32A Old Pentland Road, EH10 7EA.
