The Story of Blarney Castle Gardens – with Adam Whitbourn @ National Botanic Gardens
Feb 15 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Adam Whitbourn, head gardener at Blarney Castle gardens, will give an insight into the history and development of the gardens at this world famous landmark. Adam will give us a virtual tour of some of the highlights, as well as explaining ongoing projects such as the Irish Heritage Plant collection, his internet based tree tagging system and results from recent collecting trips in Vietnam.
This is a joint lecture with the Alpine Garden Society.
