Hazel's Garden in Laois

Hello, folks.

In July I had the pleasure of visited the garden of garden.ie member Hazel (TheH). Here is the video I made of her garden, Gortnalee Gardens in Laois.

Great video lovely to get a view around the garden and it is beautiful. I wonder what the plant in front of the Ligularia is?  Lovely big leaves and  looks as if it is changing colour.

Elizabeth - That's a Rodgersia - i think it is Rodgersia Podophylla.

Thank you, Hazel, for being generous to allow me video your beautiful space and thank you to everyone for watching.

PS Hazel, when you have a moment you should check out the comments on YouTube too. Lots of people there, saying nice things.

Great video Rachel and Hazel, the garden is looking brilliant and it's nice to hear little stories about different parts of the garden and how you've changed things.

Rachel - I'm totally overwhelmed by all the feedback on YouTube! Your camera work certainly did my garden justice! And didn't people really love the willow! Elizabeth is here at the moment and has been giving it a bit of a haircut and we have been using the shreddings as mulch!

I'm glad you read the YouTube feedback, Hazel. People just loved your garden.

My channel doesn't attract any of the negative (troll) comments that are such a pain on younger people's channels. It just attracts nice gardeners and plant growers like us :)
