Welcome to my blog about gardening and gardens in Ireland. Here you will find a broad range of topics, some to help you, some to inform and some to express my thoughts, though I try to keep those to a minimum.
You can find topics by type and by date to the right >
And other pages, including information about my talks, are above ^
I moved to Ireland in January 2013 and lived in North Wexford apart from a brief break back in the UK in 2016. Then there was the Brexit vote. Everyone has their own opinion on this but I must confess that I am wholly against the stupid idea, for a huge variety of reasons. So we made the move back to Ireland on a permanent basis in 2017, bought a part-built house with an acre of field and moved in in late 2019.
I try to post regularly, sometimes daily, sometimes once a week, depending on what is on my mind and how heavy my workload.
The new house, and especially the garden, need some work still but the garden will be the subject of lots of future posts so you will see my successes and failures.
I have two bikes
and a Suzuki GSXR1000
On this blog I will be describing lots of aspects of gardening, including what I am doing in the garden here, new plants, gardening tips, gardens I have visited, events and experiences.
