Rowallane Garden

The RHSI is delighted to announce that the renowned National Trust Rowallane garden in Saintfield, County Down has joined the RHSI Partner Garden Scheme. We are privileged to include Rowallane amongst the impressive gardens that make up the Scheme including having welcomed the National Trust property – Mount Stewart earlier this year.

In 1955, Rowallane garden passed to the National Trust and after years of conservation and restoration, it opened to the public and still continues to flourish today and is considered as one of the most beautiful gardens to visit in Northern Ireland, often described as a hidden gem. The gardens change continually through the seasons from the magnificent display of Rhododendrons, Azaleas, bulbs and herbaceous plants to roses and perennials in summer followed by stunning Autumn colours. The National Penstemon Collection, with over 50 varieties, is on show in the Walled Garden.
