I am involved with flower bed filling in Roundstone Co Galway. I want to plant native Irish plants, which provide lots of colour and are suitable for a coastal village in Connemara. Can you give some help? Shrubs and hedges could also be included.
Native shrubs include guelder rose, blackthorn, wild rose, furze and broom … fine for hedgerows, but perhaps not what you have in mind for flower beds in a village.
