Next Open Garden - Magherafelt, Sat 9 & Sun 10th June

Posted: 7/6/2012

The 2012 season continues as John and Ann Buchanan open the gates of their Magherafelt garden on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 June from 2pm to 5pm. Come along to 28 Killyfaddy Road, Magherafelt, Co Londonderry, BT45 6EX and see this gem of a garden.

A delightful, mature garden of over one acre which has extended over the years – even across the road! It has featured in BBC Television’s ‘Secret Garden’ series and is described and illustrated in Shirley Lanigan’s ‘The 100 Best Gardens in Ireland’. The curving beds are colourful tapestries of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants. There is a pond and bog garden, with masses of iris and candelabra primula, fruit trees, vegetables, well-filled greenhouses and a small hardy plant nursery. The garden is partially suitable for wheelchairs.


Killyfaddy Road is the second left off the Moneymore Road from the centre of Magherafelt. No 28 is one mile from the end of this road and is situated at the top of a hill on the left hand side after the wind turbine.

We do hope you can join us.
