windy harbour hotel

christine sheridan asked 11 years ago

I’m looking for some advice. We have a small family run hotel in Skerries. We are right in the harbour and can get very windy. We would love to have some window boxes or hanging basket but are worried whether they would last or not.We grow our own fruit -plums, apples and damsuns. We have made delicious rum pot and damsun wine in the past. We are keen to make cider and would like to purchase an apple press. However, we do not know where one can buy these in ireland or are there course available on winemaking. Any information provided would be gratefully recieved. Thanks a million Mary FloodAny advice would be gratfully appreciated

Zonal or ivy-leaved geraniums, or pelargoniums, are probably the best bet, but it would be important to give these a chance to acclimatise but potting up and leaving on the ground for a week or so.

Or use small phormiums, grasses and cordylines, all wind-resistant with fillers such as hebes.
