Coolwater Garden has joined the Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland Partner Garden Scheme and RHSI members will gain free entry to the garden. Visits will still have to be pre-booked in advance.
This winter has been a disastrous one for the Coolwater Alpines. Constant winter wet has destroyed so many plants this year. Below, the picture shows the state of one of our Lewisia Cairns: all the plants have rotted away.
Our Riparian Sculpture contrasts against the white winter-flowering heather.

And a view of the Xeric Bed across the Water Garden. The Agaves are getting very big now and soon may be touching the glazed cover on the pergola.
