Jim Scott’s Garden Tour

Chilton county master gardeners

A group of Chilton County Master Gardeners along with a few friends recently visited Jim Scott’s Garden on Lake Martin. The garden is a labyrinth of garden rooms that lead from one to another. There are surprises everywhere you look including little bug sculptures and a cat named Seraphina. There is lots of moss and natural elements as well as sculpture, structures, scenic overlooks, seating and dining areas. Water falls tumble down rock stream beds that are richly lined with ferns, oak leaf hydrangeas and more. We enjoyed seeing clematis scrambling over other plants. The variety of plants is amazing and you see blueberry and fig trees planted among ornamentals. Hosta, Louisiana iris, ferns and snowball bush were especially beautiful during our mid April visit.
