Posted: 30/7/2013


Saturday 3 and Sunday 4th August                         from 2 – 5pm

Mr Hubert and Mrs Eveline Milne, 248 Armagh Road, Newry, Co. Down, BT35 6NL.

This half acre garden has been developed since the early 1990s. Set in the rolling green country of Armagh, it has many points of interest. These include a woodland area underplanted with bulbs, ferns and herbaceous plants. There are two herbaceous borders and a small rockery bed with alpines and a scree area with rarer plants. At the back of the house, watched over by Lily the Donkey and various chickens, is a herb bed and more herbaceous planting. A collection of fruit bushes leads to a lower walk ending in evergreen planting. There is a corner filled with containers of plants mentioned in the Bible and further unusual containers filled with annuals, hostas and lilies. Mostly suitable for wheelchairs. Location: Situated just off the Armagh/Newry Road, the house is 7 miles south of Markethill on the left. Coming from Belfast on A1 take the Armagh exit off the A1 and follow signs to Armagh. Garden 2.8 miles.
