June Blake’s Garden

Address
Tinode, Blessington

For the last eleven years June Blake has devoted her time to creating an exciting, experimental and contemporary garden. It is set in the heart of West Wicklow in the grounds of an early Victorian steward’s house and farmyard surrounded by mature trees and meadows.

The gardens extend over approximately three acres and contain an eclectic collection of plants from around the world including areas of exciting, bold herbaceous planting and a shade garden of ferns, grasses bamboos and other choice woodland plants punctuated by enormous granite boulders. There is a shallow, linear reflecting pool set amidst exuberant tropical and prairie planting. The latest addition is a minimalist courtyard offering a space of austere tranquillity in contrast to the lavish exuberance of the surrounding gardens.

The various elements of the garden include:

* The Garden Entrance
* The Woodland Garden
* Reflecting Pools & Hot Beds
* Prarie Beds
* The Courtyard
* The Nursery

The gardens are open every Wednesday to Sunday from 11am – 5.30pm
Why not book a personal guided tour?

June also hosts garden talks and garden consultations and design by appointment

June also offers luxury self-catering accommodation in  recently restored 19th Century farm building:  more info here
