Privately owned gardens

Benvarden Garden 16 Feb and Ballyrobert Cottage Garden 22-23 Feb

This winter, it was clear to be seen that the weather was milder than previous years, but for the snowdrops it’s been a little confusing! The skies have been clear and as the sun come out, so do the snowdrops, possibly over a week earlier than usual. 

The Argory, near Moy and Springhill House, Moneymore opened a week earlier than planned so that visitors could experience every moment of these beautiful little flowers. Carpets of snowdrops will line the many walks around the properties; their bright, white nodding heads peeping through the undergrowth that bring with them a breath of fresh air and a sign that spring it on its way.

The Argory will be open every Saturday and Sunday in February from12 – 5pmdaily. Springhill will be open on Sunday 29 Jan and every Sunday in February from1-5pmdaily.

For further information contact the Argory on 028.8778 4753 and/or Springhill on 028 8674 8210.

Enjoy your walk thro the Snowdrops - why not post a pic on our Facebook pages.
