Paul Maher and Edel McDonald both worked at the National Botanic Gardens at Glasnevin until their retirement in 2019: Paul as Curator of the Gardens; Edel as Propagation Foreman. Both are long standing members of the Irish Garden Plant Society.(IGPS) Paul was involved as the designer of two IGPS exhibits at Chelsea winning Silver Gilt medals in the educational exhibits category. Edel has been a great promoter of the Society encouraging her students to join and in propagating plants for the Society’s annual Plant Sale*. Edel continues to propagate plants for her new garden.

Since retiring, Paul along with Edel have been busy creating a new garden in north County Wexford. We look forward to hearing about the work done to date and their plans for the future.
