High summer!


High summer!


July is the middle month of summer and sees so many wonderful plants come into flower. Borders billow with perennial flowers and summer bedding plants and planted containers show how they can turn any space into a summer garden. And there are lots of fruits and vegetable to enjoy. In WHAT TO DO NOW and KNOW-HOW, we have lots of tips and suggestions


In FLOWER GARDEN, Gerry Daly reviews plant with silver or grey foliage for their value in softening the appearance of a border, contrasting with other foliage plants and giving flowers a special sparkle. In PLANT PROFILE, James Wickham writes about campanulas, the border bellflowers, reviewing some old favourites and special new kinds. In GARDEN HISTORY: Temple House Gardens, Co. Sligo where Ally Bunbury was enchanted by a historic garden and its setting. Mary Davies also visited.


In GARDEN VISIT, Shirley Lanigan visited the painter Dame Philippa Bayliss in her Co. Carlow garden. In DESIGN DESK, Gabi Sanio and Shane O'Neill produce a proposal for the design of a large rural garden in Co. Cork. In NOTEBOOKS, Carmel Duignan is not impressed by the vogue for all things grassy, while Mary Waldron has to re-think an area of annual flowers.


In GARDEN CENTRE EXPERIENCE, Ingrid Clerkin won €300 to spend on plants at Newlands Home and Garden Centre, Clondalkin, Dublin. Mary Davies reviews good reading in OVERLEAF while Yvonne Gordon chatted with Stephen Flynn of The Happy Pear about his favourite plant. 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.


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