ABC Gardener of the Year
Alowyn Gardens was honoured to be awarded the National ABC Gardener of the Year in 2008. John Patrick said of the garden, “This is a garden that works for me on many levels, I really admire the way in which it has been meticulously planned. It has an internal focus with the fountain, but it still borrows the landscape around as a setting. It has a wonderful diversity of plants planted in masses for great visual impact. Most of all, I really admire the effort that has gone into the garden, It’s no wonder that it is an award winning garden”.
