Event Details

Huntingbrook Gardens, the home of Jimi Blake, is a plantaholic's dream garden. Jimi himself will guide us around his botanical paradise leading us through his many gardens: Fred's Garden, Ashley's Garden, the Terraced Garden, the Garden Room and Meadow to name but some. Each area has its distinctive planting scheme unique to Jimi. Plants of note include Aralia echincaulis, Geraniums "Ann Thompson" and "Mount Venus", Celmesia semicordata" David Shackleton", as well as many dahlia varieties. The garden also features a woodland leading to a 7th century ring fort. Expect a riot of colour in this delightful garden with a modern twist.

 

                      Best of all Jimi will have plants for sale! 

 

Our tour starts at 2.30pm sharp allowing you time in the moring to visit Jimi's sister, June Blake's garden nearby, if you wish. Please arrive between 2.15 and 2.30 so that our tour can start on time. Tea/coffee will be served.

Organiser

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.
