Late Spring Garden


Spring is well established in Ardgillan now.

There is still a good display of daffodils/Narcissus and many other spring flowering bulbs including tulips, dwarf specious tulips, Hyacinths, Chionodoxa, Anemone, Ipheion and Fritillaria providing great colour on the herbaceous border, in the wood land area east of the walled garden, on the scree bed and throughout the walled garden.

The vegetable garden has been sown and planted with lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, onions and many more. The summer months will bring an abundance of fresh produce. The herb garden is coming back to life, with many new plants being added.

Spring flowering shrubs are also in full bloom in the walled garden with lovely displays from the magnolias and the camellias and many more.
