Bridget Cullen gardens near Oylegate. It is an informal flower garden created with a lot of slips, bulbs and cuttings received from friends and ancestors. When walking around the garden Biddy will say "that's aunt May's rose; Polly's Solomon's seal or Fergus' fern. The soil is very sandy.
Denise Leahy says - We started garden 22/23 years ago. We have really heavy clay/marl soil, so everything grown here is on soil imported over the years. I love herbaceous which is labour intensive as you know, so in recent years we're trying to reduce the work. Our garden is fairly casual & very weed tolerant. Lockdown & the great weather has given us the chance to catch up on lots of jobs.
