Event Details

Mary Montaut loves bees.. and other pollinators too in her garden. In this lecture Mary will share her knowledge of the plants in her Wicklow garden which attract bees ... and other pollinators. She is keen to stress that bees need plants all year round and Mary hopes that her lecture will make you think when choosing plants to help these valuable creatures thrive in our environment. Mary is editor of Beachaire, the Newsletter for the Federation of Irish Beekeepers Associations and is a member of the Leinster Committee of the Irish Garden Plant Society.

This lecture will be for all of us who are baffled by the array of plants in our garden centres and nurseries. There will be time at the end of the lecture to answer your questions regarding plant choice, care and position. Mary's lecture will be a great introduction to the many great plants we can use in our gardens to attract lots of pollinators.. 

Entrance is open to all, members and non-members of The Irish Garden Plant Society. There is no need to pre-book. Just turn up and enjoy.  Please take a copy of our recent Newsletters to read more about us: the lectures we will hold this Spring and the gardens we have visited this past Summer. Our website  gives more information on how to join and forthcoming garden visits.

IGPS Leinster

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. 

Do come along to one of our events and speak to any member for more information.
