About this event

Divided into a series of rooms, owner Paula will lead us on a journey from the poppy garden, cottage garden and rose garden to the latest room, a serenity garden with a circular pool. A mown path leads to a cut flower garden.

Plants to note are the grasses, ferns, agapanthus and David Austen roses along with trees such as aralias, magnolias, cornus and a selection of prunus including P. Hai-taku and Shirotae.

Paula and her husband Thomas built Kilgar in 2007. The garden started with planting boundary hedges and using old iron railings. Then 2 small gardens were added at the side of the house, the rest was lawn used as a football pitch for their two sons. Today, this area is divided into individual gardens designed, planted and maintained by Paula. A trained florist with a background in interior design, Paula uses scale, proportion, focal points, structure and planting combinations to effect.

Refreshments will be served on our visit. Parking at the gardens. Please wear suitable footwear for your visit.

KiIgar is an oasis of calm leading from the formal to more naturalistic planting with views extending to the Meath countryside beyond. A must see!

Organiser IGPS Leinster

Organiser of Kilgar Gardens Saturday 14 August @ 14.30

The Irish Garden Plant Society is a group of enthusiastic gardeners with a special love for Irish plants. We are passionate about researching, finding and propagating Irish plants to ensure their survival. We research Irish gardens and garden history. We actively promote Irish horticulture with recognition for our exhibits at major international shows, including Chelsea. We enjoy Irish gardens through regular talks, lectures, workshops and visits to gardens. We publish a Newsletter three times a year and a journal every few years.

The Society has members throughout the island of Ireland and is divided into three regions: Northern, Leinster and Munster. In Leinster we hold our lectures during the Winter at the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin and we organise visits to gardens, many of which are private, in the Eastern region.Members are very welcome to attend lectures or visit gardens in any region. 

In addition we maintain close links with other gardens societies such as The Irish Society of Botanical Artists, Plant Heritage,the Alpine Garden Society, the Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland and the Royal Horticultural Society. 

Do come along to one of our events and speak to any member for more information.
