Well, we're all looking forward to the new 50 Shades of Grey film in next year but, just to tide us over, here's the gardener's version...

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.

Madeira Fire

I know I have posted about this subject before but I have since made an appeal video so would like to post it here.

The Jardim Orquídea in Funchal dates back 110 years and had been maintained over four generations of the Pregetter family. It was considered to be one of the largest private collections in the world, with many of the specimens extinct elsewhere. Only 2,000 plants are thought to be recoverable and the future of the garden remains uncertain.

An appeal to raise £50,000 to assist the restoration of Jardim Orquídea is in place. If you would like to help by making a donation, please visit the garden website at...

Thank you.

Dillon Garden in August

Here is a video on The Dillon Garden in August this year. It is my 4th Dillon Garden video so, if you've never been but have been watching, you should be getting familiar with it by now.

This garden is open on Sundays in September (check the website) and then it will finally close. Enjoy!

PS Did you notice a flash of the Dillon Garden in the intro to the new Gardeners' World series? A feature should be coming soon. The team came to film the same day as the July video I made so Helen was out to lunch with Monty when I was videoing her garden ;-)
