THE ORGANIC WALLED GARDEN AT LISSADELL IN SLIGO THE MOST ATTRACTIVE AND PRODUCTIVE 2.2 ACRES I HAVE SEEN – FIRST WEEK IN SEPTEMBER 2010

Any visit to Sligo would not be complete without a visit to Lissadell House and Gardens. After a hearty breakfast at Seashore B&B nearby, the Saturday was clear to meet up with Dermot Carey, the dedicated and very talented head gardener at Lissadell. The walled garden has recently been awarded full organic certification and is a brilliant show-case for organic growing methods.

The rotation of crop families is followed but on this scale and with this diversity of crops it needs some explanation for the casual visitor. the diversity of colour and vegetable types is what strikes a visitor as truly impressive.
