Saffron’s garden.

Set on a south facing slope, in esker country, south Sligo, this is an artists and plantpersons garden. Nature and biodiversity are paramount.

There are flower studded lawns and paths that lead you around borders filled with an eclectic and exciting mix of flowers, shrubs and trees. There is also a fruit and veg patch, two ponds, a small orchard and a large polytunnel. The garden is ever expanding yet blends into the gentle landscape in a subtle and interesting way.

Mown paths lead through a garden that is packed with rare and unusual plants, shrubs and trees. Saffron collects and sows hundreds of seeds each year and sells some of the resulting plants. A true gardeners paradise.
