My visit was towards the end of February. The main purpose was to see natures exhibition of Crocuses, a blanket of colour in the lawn in front of this c300 year old home. These bulbs were planted by Harry’s family two generations back, that’s about 90 years ago, and perform this show of nature’s beauty at the same time every year announcing the start of spring, and will keep up the exhibition well into March.
Arbor in Coolaught Garden and Garden Center
There is another spectacle in this garden which is a c50 meter Arbor covered in yellow Laburnum. This tunnel of relaxing yellow colour and strong scent is a very special space where lovers can gently hold hands and nurture sweet whispers. This spectacle happens around mid-May and runs into June.
