Next Garden Opening

Posted: 30/8/2013

Saturday 7 and Sunday 8th September                from 2 – 5pm

Hugh Jackson and Judith O’Keeffe, 30A Ballynulto Road, Glenwherry, Co.Antrim, BT42 4RJ.


We are opening this garden for the second time this season to allow you to enjoy the colours as the largely grass's garden takes on the early Autumal colours.

Its a rare opportunity to re-visit a garden to enjoy the seasonal changes.

Transplanted Canadians Judith and Hugh have accepted the challenges of gardening in clay soil and windy conditions by planting a prairie style garden in the “shadow of Slemish”. Grasses, Crocosmia, Astrantia and Cornus Alba are mass planted to form textural masses. The character of this easily maintained garden changes completely during the autumn and winter as the red twig dogwood foil with the waving grasses and other seed heads. Stone walls contribute additional texture to this rural site. Mostly suitable for wheelchairs.

Location: A36 Ballymena to Larne, 0.5 miles east of B94 turn left onto Ballynulto Roadfor 0.8 miles. The garden is on the east side.
