Visit to Russborough
The Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland kindly invited the Irish Garden Plant Society to their walled garden restoration project at Russborough House. Members were treated to a guided tour of the remarkable volunteer-led work in progress, with an incredible showcase of fruit, vegetables, and wonderful herbaceous plantings, all the more inspiring as it has been accomplished in 3 years.
As with all such work, plans and decisions must be made, the grass area will be themed gardens, including one for Irish Heritage Plants that the IGPS will be involved with, while the walnut tree is possibly failing. Followed by wonderful home made cakes and lots of tea. Many thanks to everyone.
