Assumpta Broomfield graduated with distinction from the National Botanic Gardens in 1998 and is known to be one of Ireland’s most accomplished gardeners. She has worked in the private sector designing and constructing gardens including the Corona North Commemorative Border at Altamont.

At the beginning of the 20th century,  Altamont was one of the most important  gardens in Ireland. It is still one of the most important  gardens due to the passion and determination  of both Feilding Lecky Watson and his daughter  Corona North. This lecture traces the history of the garden using rare, exciting historical documents and photographs.

Original research is revealed in a talk that is also entertaining  and light-hearted.
