Planting for Long Term Colour and Interest in the Garden

As a painter and artist Philippa Bayliss’ garden is all about colour and this talk by GLDA member Patricia Tyrrell discusses and explains how to work successfully with colour in the garden.

At the height of summer gardens are filled with colour, but what of the rest of the year? Patricia reveals how to plant for maximum effect for the longest possible period and without too much maintenance while also discussing how to plan and plant in the most effective way to achieve both these aims. Visitors are promised lots of ideas that can be recreated in different contexts in a small space, using the gardens at the Meadows which cover a ¼ acre as an example.

Venue: No. 7, The Meadows, Myshall, Co. Carlow R21 CF43
Time: 3 p.m.
Admission: adults €5
Contact: 059-9157530
