Planting Shelter Belts in your Garden Saturday 18th November 1 – 4pm
Have you considered planting trees and shrubs to create calm and sheltered areas in your garden? The winds from the Atlantic and the Mountains often burn and kill our prize plants leaving us sad and disgruntled. The answer is to grow plants that are very hardy here as windbreaks, then we can care for our favourite plants natu-rally. This workshop will look at the principles of windbreak design with special con-sideration for coastal conditions. Which plants will suit your needs, how many and where you can source them will all be covered. Soil conditions and planting techniques will be considered covering the best time of year and also the aftercare needed. Irish suppliers and varieties will be promoted giving you the best possibilities of a great garden in the years to come. 1 day. Fee: €20. Sue Jackson
