Plants & Food For Garden Gourmets

Bellefield Gardens Autumn Open Day Once again it is time for the Bellefield Gardens Autumn Open Day – Saturday, 17th September from 11 am to 4.30 pm in Shinrone, Co. Offaly.

This is a last chance to enjoy the remains of Summer before Winter closes in! The garden is still looking good – despite the winds that are blowing! We still have the wonderful reds, yellows and bronzes of Autumn leaves and flowers.  The Autumn border is looking particularly good.

The fruit and vegetable garden has been excellent this Summer with an abundance of goodies to be prepared and kept for the Winter.

Highlights on Saturday will include a huge array of Spring and Autumn flowering plants and bulbs to buy in the Courtyard.  Special plants will include new varieties of Clematis, hellebores, cyclamen, nerines and other Spring flowering plants.  There will be talks on what bulbs to plant for a succession of Spring colour.

For the ‘foodie’ gardener, we will have a walk through the vegetable garden with advice and instruction from Dee Sewell of Greenside Up.  There will be local food producers demonstrating their favourite dishes…. and there will be an opportunity to purchase the flavoursome foods made by local artisans.

And when you have absorbed all that knowledge there will be time to sit and enjoy homemade coffee and cakes in the Stable.

Entrance fee: €5.00    Free parking.
