February 2016 – Enniscoe Gardens
In 2013 we received a welcome grant from Failte Ireland to repair the great wall and alcove and to add to the collection of miniature conifers in the rockery. The architect Jeremy Williams designed trellised arches each side of the alcove and indeed this was his last project at Enniscoe. We also planted box wood trees at intervals along the wall. All the plantings have settled in and are looking good.
Work in the organic vegetable garden continues to go well, and the poly tunnels continue to be put to good use...One tunnel has been set up as a teaching area with good access for wheelchair users. And the supply of fruits and vegetables to the house kept going right to the end of our season.
The new building with class room and storage areas was completed over two years ago and is in constant use.
New courses are being planned for this year in organic vegetable growing, basket making (using willow grown in the garden) and other subjects. For information and booking contact Carol Williams at 096 31809, email email@example.com
Access to the gardens and pleasure grounds is available to Enniscoe guests at any time without charge. There is a separate entrance for day visitors through the Heritage Centre.
