Margaret Mc Auliffe

This is a Zoom talk and the link will be sent to members as the date (1st March) approaches.

Neil is an historic garden consultant and plantsman who has worked in and on several of the very major gardens of Ireland. IGPS members have had the great pleasure of his time on several occasions over the years – guided walks at Ballynatray, Mount Stewart and Annes Grove come especially to mind as very enjoyable and memorable outings. He spent several years at Mount Stewart Gardens, a National Trust property on the east coast of Strangford Lough before embarking on a career as a garden consultant.

In the course of his work he has visited and worked with many of the great gardens of the country and in this talk will give us a wonderful insight into five exceptional gardens in Northern Ireland: Mount Stewart, Rostrevor, Rowallane, Castlewellan and Brook Hall.

This promises to be an exceptionally good talk so be sure to mark it well on your calendar!
