Joyous June!


June is a month of burgeoning growth as many summer border plants rush toward flowering, and vegetables and fruit develop rapidly. It is the month of longest days when light intensity is greatest and the weather is seasonally warm. And for humans, the weather can offer the opportunity to make use of the garden for leisure purposes. We have all the tips and suggestions in WHAT TO DO NOW and KNOW-HOW.


In FLOWER GARDEN, Gerry Daly discusses the role of plants with upright flower stems in offering contrast to the horizontal line of most plants. In PLANT PROFILE, Ciaran Burke extols the charms of day lilies and their garden value. In GARDEN HISTORY, Celebration and commemoration - trees at Áras an Uachtaráin, Mary Forrest describes a notable collection in ‘The Park'.


In GARDEN VISIT, Shirley Lanigan is enchanted by Ann and Glan Ballan's charming cottage garden in East Cork. In DESIGN DESK, Shane O'Neill responds to the challenge of making a garden by linking three areas around a farmhouse in Co. Wexford.


In NOTEBOOKS, Rae McIntyre recalls being mesmerised by the striking beauty of the Chilean fire bush, while Lorna MacMahon outlines her experience of a range of choice shrubs. In GARDEN CENTRE EXPERIENCE, Carolann Webster won €300 to spend on plants at Cois na hAbhann Garden, Home & Lifestyle Centre, Camolin, Co. Wexford.


In NEWS Lindie Naughton has collected ideas across a range of garden accessories and equipment. In PEOPLE, Fionnuala Fallon visited a very active community garden in Carlow Town.


June Bank Holiday means BLOOM 2017, the biggest gardening event of the year. This year, at the request of Bord Bia, the BLOOM organizers, The Irish Garden will take part in a special BLOOM Advice Hub, where each day from 1 to 5 June, 10am to 6pm, readers will be able to meet 20 contributors to the magazine and ask for advice about plants or aspects of their garden. A schedule of attendance is published on page 66.


And, as always, we ask you to support service and product suppliers who support The Irish Garden.


Good gardening!
