The Penultimate Garden
After a lifetime making gardens in different habitats, here the artist Katherine Nixon collates her experience over the seven acres between a drumlin and the tidal Dorn, an inlet of Strangford Lough. At the heart of these lies a courtyard garden sheltering some tender and many scented subjects. It wraps around the artist’s sculpture and painting studios.
Across the road is a thriving permacultural smallholding. It comprises woodland, wetland and meadow, which sustain increasing numbers of wildlife. Panoramic views from the top of the drumlin are well worth the climb.
