The Walled Garden at Mount Stewart needs your help to bring it back to life. Once the powerhouse of the demesne it provided plants, flowers, fruit and vegetables to serve the house and feed the estate staff. Your gift will help us plant an extensive collection of the best scented period roses and a selection of fruit trees in the orchard. Longer term we will once again grow soft fruit in the restored Vineries and Peach Houses. The Walled Garden Vinery is the only significant historic glasshouse left in the demesne and it is home to the ancient, ‘White Syrian’ vine, (the oldest vine in Ireland and the second oldest in the UK). Thank you for your support - donations, whatever the level, are very significant.
