This Sunday, the annual Autumn Garden Fair takes place in Claregalway Castle from 11am to 6pm. Some of Ireland’s best nurseries and rare plant specialists will have a great selection of shrubs, trees and more.
Autumn is the best time to plan, plant and redesign a garden. The ground is still warm and plants and trees can settle in to guarantee good growth. You still see the gaps that need filling, the plants you want to remove and replace.
Wish you had pears, plums, apple, peach trees? Now is an ideal time to plant some potted trees and you can look forward to a beautiful Spring display of blossom, followed by fruit.
Not an experienced gardener? This is a great opportunity to meet gardeners with years of experience who can guide and advise the best route to planning your own paradise garden.
Not an owner of a garden but owner of a balcony and window space? Meet the suppliers who can transform a dull space into something beautiful.
Not even a garden enthusiast? Come out and join the green fingered for coffee and light refreshments and hear why a garden matters so much to so many.
