Garden Workshop: Container and Kitchen Gardening, Thyme and Place, Salt Lake City

Sunday 19th March 2017.

During my time in Salt Lake City, (more on that when I catch my breath) I gave two courses at boutique garden store Thyme and Place, Utah.

The first on container gardening took re-purposed wooden boxes, sponsored by Barebones Living and turned them into, in short, miniature gardens. From how to care for plants and keep them alive to the actual design technique and piecing the selcted plants together to create a stunning display.

The second class I gave was on growing your own kitchen garden. Specifically aimed at those who had as some may call it, a brown thumb. The basics covered, watering and capillary action (sounds technical, but it’s not explained right) – all the way through to seed grermination and potting on.

Peter Donegan – A Very Short History:

I started growing plants from the age of 5, created my first garden aged 10 and of now have won national awards for the design and build of 17th and 18th Century estates. I have also built and designed show gardens for both display and at national competition. And whether I am creating gardens privately, advising, teaching or talking about a particular horticultural subject, horticulture and gardening has been my entire life and I am at my happiest when I and the great outdoors are together. I started Donegan Landscaping Dublin in 2001, aged 24.

Peter Donegan is a full member of The Garden Media Guild (UK)

In the midst of getting garden projects completed for the year end I had been somewhat remiss in posting it here and as some may have gathered the news that I am a full GMG member.

Saturday 9th July I was honoured to have been invited to give a talk to a group of horticulturists, garden designers and landscape architects that had travelled from Germany to Ireland. Above, pictured with some of the group.

On this occasion the lecture, if you will, took place at Ireland’s National Botanic Gardens, Dublin.

My thanks to the Catherine, Donall, Paul and the team at The Bots who (as always and again) looked after me so very well. Thank you, so very much.
