Gladys Fisher opening her gardens for charity

Raising funds for the National Trust and Horizon West Children’s Hospice Mrs Glady Fisher will open her beautiful garden to the public on Sunday, August 18.

As part of the Ulster Gardens Scheme Mrs Fisher, of Gublusk Bay, Ballinamallard will open her garden  from 2-5pm on Sunday. Described by the National Trust as a delightful extensive garden with views across Gublusk Bay the open event is not to be missed. The Fermanagh garden is the only one part of the Ulster wide scheme.

There is a walled garden with a circle of pleached lime trees, a herbaceous border, a Carpinus archway, and a parterre. The four acre lawn has shrub beds, a collection of trees, a pond with a bridge, and there is also a Well that flows into Gublusk Bay and beyond to Lough Erne.

On the day there will also be a plant stall and Horizon West will be making the tea and charging a small fee, with the funds going to the hospice.

The Ulster Gardens Scheme raises funds for special projects in National Trust gardens within Northern Ireland through the opening of privately owned gardens to the public in a series of open days or visits arranged by appointment.

If you wish to attend on Sunday the house and garden are on the Enniskillen side of the Manor House Country Hotel. The house is just before the hotel on the left.

Entry is £3, which goes to National Trust and money made from the tea going towards Horizon West Children’s Hospice.
