Mr John and Mrs Ann Buchanan, 28 Killyfaddy Road, Magherafelt, Co. Londonderry, BT45 6EX.
A delightful, mature garden of over one acre has extended over the years – even across the road. It is featured in BBC Television’s Secret Garden series and is described and illustrated in Shirley Lanigan’s ‘The 100 Best Gardens in Ireland’. The curving beds are colourful tapestries of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants. There is a pond and bog garden with masses of Iris and candelabra primula, fruit trees, vegetables, well-filled greenhouses and a small hardy plant nursery.
Partially suitable for wheelchairs. Location: Killyfaddy Road is the second left off the Moneymore Road from the centre of Magherafelt.
No 28 is one mile from the end of this road and is situated at the top of a hill on the left hand side after the wind turbine. Plant Stall
