Pogue’s Entry Garden is the newer and smaller of the two gardens cared for by Northern Membership volunteers.

Situated in Antrim town Conservation area it is easily located at the top end of High Street which leads down to the cupola topped former Courthouse where we often meet for lectures. BT41 4BT with nearby carparking.

The garden, which is owned by the Local Authority has been closed to the public since the pandemic but the volunteers have been able to continue their work.

The garden will be opened on Friday,7th July from 11am to 3 30pm to give the Membership an opportunity to visit. Friends and guests are welcome. No ticket is required or cost involved and please feel free to bring a picnic!

New volunteers are being sought and we are keen to incorporate as many Irish cultivars and plants with an Irish connection as possible. It is an enclosed courtyard garden with mixed borders, shade planting and a vegetable plot.

A few hundred yards away are the celebrated Antrim Castle Gardens- interesting and expansive they open out onto pathways leading to shoreline walks alongside Lough Neagh with fine views. There is a good cafe and the opportunity to see Diarmid Gavin’s Jubilee Garden with it whimsical design and fine planting. Entry is free and there is good carparking space on site.

The volunteers look forward to seeing many of you visit.
