The Greedy Gardener - with Rosemary Maye @ Northridge House,

Rosemary Maye may be better known to you as The Insomniac Gardener. In this talk – The Greedy Gardener or How to have Colour in every Season –  she will show how she manages to have interest and colour in the garden in every season.

Rosemary says,

“I love the title of a poem, by E.e Cummings

This is the Garden: Colours come and go


Seventeen years ago we were enticed to the countryside.

Mullaghdillon House, a romantic old house, whose beauty included the centuries old trees and borrowed views that include the historic ruins of Slane on the hill opposite …. but no colour.


I love colour, and immediately set about planting.

Learning as I went along, I now have something to delight me in all seasons.

Whether it’s interest from bulbs or colour from an autumn leaf, colour is possible in all seasons.


Join me on a year’s journey in my garden.”


Tea/coffee afterwards. Raffle.

All welcome
