At Moyclare, planting began in 1927 by Moira and Louis Reid. Meandering paths lead through woodland shrubberies, herbaceous borders and sunny corners. The pond and lawns are surrounded by camellias, rhododendrons, mature trees, shrubs and many rare treasures from the Southern Hemisphere.
Penmilder is a 2.5-acre south-facing garden with delightful bluebell woods and an apple orchard, which is particularly pretty with primroses and daffodils in the spring.
Sisters, Adrienne and Trish, are developing South Bosent with wildlife in mind. It comprises several themed gardens, woodland plantings, large mixed borders and a four-acre meadow. Other features include a mini-lake, waterfall and rill on the terrace, and several plant collections, all designed to provide year-round interest. Along with thousands of planted bulbs throughout the garden, a bluebell wood runs alongside the stream pathway.
A booking form for this self-drive visit will be available in March 2021.
