Saturday 6th July from 2-5pm sees Mary and Kathleen McKeown open their amazing garden in Draperstown, this is part of the Ulster Garden Scheme 2013
A charming one acre garden which is mostly hidden behind the cottage. There is a large pond surrounded by various shrubs and perennials. The upper garden takes in a gazebo and a recently erected arbour where you can sit and view the area of the garden leading down to the pond. The garden to the front of the house takes the form of a cottage garden; an extensive view of this garden can be seen while sitting in the summerhouse which is situated in the bottom right hand corner of the front garden. The garden was featured on the BBC television programme “Greenmount Gardens” and more recently in the ‘Irish Garden’ magazine.
Mostly suitable for wheelchairs.
