William Morris once said – “Large or small, [the garden] should be orderly and rich.”
Not far from Galway, Ireland at Kylemore Estates is a 6-acre formal Victorian walled garden where orderly beds of flowers and vegetables are arranged against the backdrop of the Connemara Mountains. It is filled with plants introduced to the Irish bog environment prior to 1901. The garden was the winner of the Europa Nostra Award in 2001.
