Welcome to our website!
Here you will find out all about:-
- the plants we grow and sell;
- our garden that's open to the public ;
- our design and advice service;
- the courses we are running; and
- all sorts of other things!
There have been many influences on our 'Philosophy' from Vita Sackville-West's Sissinghurst to Christoper Lloyd's Great Dixter. However the largest influence by far was by Irish born William Robinson, author of 'The Wild Garden' and thought by many to be the father figure of the Cottage Garden Style.
We like to think that that what he called “A garden designed to fit the place,” has been executed here to perfection - please come and find out for yourself!
But there is much more than just our Garden. We also sell plants. A retail plant nursery run by Joy is open to the public and has been designed in sympathy with the garden. We stock a wealth of cottage garden type plants all of which have been trialled in our own garden. We only sell what we have grown ourselves!
A garden design & advice service is run by Maurice Parkinson who is one of the province's leading horticulturalists and the former Director of Parks with Belfast City Council.
We hope you enjoy navigating our site and look forward to hearing from you soon!
