Mount Stewart is one of the most inspiring and unusual gardens in the National Trust’s ownership.

The garden reflects a rich tapestry of design and great planting artistry that was the hallmark of Edith, Lady Londonderry. The mild climate of Strangford Lough allows astonishing levels of planting experimentation. The formal areas exude a strong Mediterranean feel and resemble an Italian villa landscape; the wooded areas support a range of plants from all corners of the world, ensuring something to see whatever the season.

Engaging tours of the opulent house reveal its fascinating heritage and historic world-famous artifacts and artwork.

  1. Sorry to hassle you, but after another couple hours wasted searching, I just had to try…
    I noticed way back on the 7th March 2012 you guys added some Tripterygium regelii v. occidentale to your collection as per link>>> https://ntmountstewartdiary.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/sourcing-new-plants-for-our-gardens/

    Did they live, and if so, did they ever set seeds, and if so can I buy or swap a couple?
    If not, do you know of a source?

    Been trying to add these to my collection since 2010, and they are permitted imports to Australia, 100% ok to send, I just can’t find any anywhere!
    Years later now and I am still looking..

    More than happy to pay whatever, and failing that you may like the look of something in my website?
    Got a pretty big collection, and if it isn’t in the store I may just have some stashed away or know where to get some, so if you have a wish list yourself be sure to send it through.
    Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read my request.

    No matter what you decide, be sure to have a rocking day!!!
