Mark is a professional Scientist and passionate collector of rare and unusual plants. In partnership with his wife Laura, Mark has transformed a 2.5 acre derelict farmyard into a botanical garden with thousands of exciting and difficult to find plants.  Their Dhu Varren Garden in Co. Kerry  has been described by Jimi Blake of Huntington Brook Garden as “one of the exciting and fascinating new gardens in Ireland”.  The presentation will illustrate the development of the garden over the past 14 years, describe some of the plants and their cultivation and future plans for the garden.  Some  rare and unusual plants will be available for sale on the night.
