Gardens in autumn have a special charm all of their own and Rowallane, the beautiful National Trust garden in Saintfield, is in now in spectacular autumn colour.
Come out and enjoy the magnificent garden and browse through the stalls at the Plant Fair on Saturday, October 5.
“Autumn is a fabulous time to move plants when the soil is still warm and the growing season is closing down. Plants get a chance to settle down with as little stress as possible and will grow on without the check next spring,” said Averil Milligan Rowallane Head Gardener.
Plants grown at the famous garden will be available for sale with a mixture of herbaceous perennials, and herbs propagated from the garden.
In addition to Rowallane’s own stall, specialist nurseries from the region, will be offering a variety of shrubs, herbaceous and alpines to purchase.
Ulster Gardens Scheme end of year sale will include a variety of plants from their own collections as will the Irish Garden Plant Society. Normal admission charges and members are free to Rowallane will apply for the sale, which will run from 12-5pm. For information, contact Rowallane Garden on 9751 0131.
