GROW - LEARN - SHOP - EXPLORE - EAT
The RHSI and The Alfred Beit Foundation have teamed up for the third year to host a spectacular Garden Show on Sunday, 28th July 2019 in the beautiful parkland setting of Russborough, Blessington, Co. Wicklow.
With plenty to occupy the experienced and the novice gardener, children and families, attractions will include plant stalls from some of Ireland’s leading nurseries, including Camolin Potting Shed, Leamore Nursery, Rare Plants Ireland and Shady Plants Nursery. There will also be select stalls dealing in garden accessories, cut flowers, artisan foods and botanic-inspired art and craft, all complementing the beautiful plant offering.
Under the ‘Learn’ banner, we’re including talks in the Hippodrome from such luminaries as Éanna Ní Lamhna, Oliver Schurmannn, Hester Forde, Hazel Proctor, Mick Kelly, Ed Burnham and Anne Swithinbank offering their expert insights; with Peter Donegan, fresh from speaking at the RHS Cardiff Talks Theatre, as MC.
We’re delighted to say that the Garden & Landscape Design Association will be offering Garden Design Clinics (separate booking required). These take place in the RHSI Walled Garden which will also play host to music from the Ballymore Eustace Concert Band, demonstrations, workshops, RHSI garden tours and more, as well as providing plenty of gardening inspiration in its own right.
Ticket holders will also benefit from all of Russborough’s many amenities, including walks, a fairy trail for children, 25% discounts to tour Russborough House or visit the National Birds of Prey Centre - a special flight demonstration is also scheduled as part of the day.
The organisers are immensely grateful to anchor sponsor, Quinns Superstore; to the Leader Programme, in particular for their focus on biodiversity and sustainability. Friends of the Show are GLDA, mycabin.ie, The Irish Garden, Euro Garden & Home and Quilter Cheviot. A particular thanks goes to RHSI garden manager, May Maguire and the RHSI team of volunteers who keep the Walled Garden in peak condition.
