Where I live: Rathgeran , Co Carlow Member since: June 2009 Last here: 2957 days 7 hours ago
About my garden: My "garden" is on a slope, its about 1.5 acres, completely surrounded by Oak trees. Underneath is a small Oak Wood, which I've recently named "Bluebell Grove" as it turns blue in early summer with the little bluebells that grow around the trees & smell absolutely wonderful. I hope to create an old world garden with pathways & secret corners and also hope to provide fragrance all year round. As an interior designer, I've added an underlying challenge of a colour scheme: pink, white, blue & purple for the flowers & shrubs.. My favourite flowers are those that remind me of my childhood, scented climbing roses and huge peonies.
More about me: I've been interested in gardening for as long as I can remember, having spent the first few years of my life following my Grandad around his amazing garden. Using the advice he passed on to me and incorporating my own design skills as well as ideas from travels, I started my own garden in March this year.
