About this event

Rosie Maye will host a small group of IGPS members for a Workshop on propagating your stocks of Irish Heritage and other plants. We can look forward to seeing her show us some basic methods for propagation, such as dividing your plants, taking soft wood cuttings in time for the early season in May - June, and how best to plant your seeds from the IGPS Plant Distribution.

The Committee will bring some suitable plant material and Rosie Maye will provide us with compost as necessary. However, the main point of this Workshop will be to encourage and assist with increasing our stocks of Irish Heritage Plants.

The Workshop is scheduled to take 2 hours in the morning.

Please note that you will need suitable clothing, and gardening gloves of your choice, to take part in this Workshop.

NB - no digging will be involved.

Bookings essential.

The Irish Garden Plant Society is a group of enthusiastic gardeners with a special love for Irish plants. We are passionate about researching, finding and propagating Irish plants to ensure their survival. We research Irish gardens and garden history. We actively promote Irish horticulture with recognition for our exhibits at major international shows, including Chelsea. We enjoy Irish gardens through regular talks, lectures, workshops and visits to gardens. We publish a Newsletter three times a year and a journal every few years.

The Society has members throughout the island of Ireland and is divided into three regions: Northern, Leinster and Munster. In Leinster we hold our lectures during the Winter at the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin and we organise visits to gardens, many of which are private, in the Eastern region.Members are very welcome to attend lectures or visit gardens in any region. 

In addition we maintain close links with other gardens societies such as The Irish Society of Botanical Artists, Plant Heritage,the Alpine Garden Society, the Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland and the Royal Horticultural Society.
