Peter Donegan – A Short History

I started growing plants from the age of 5, created my first garden aged 10 and have won national awards for the design and build of 17th and 18th Century estates and designed show gardens for both display and national competition. In 2018 I was selected to represent Ireland in the design and realisation of the Irish WW1 Centenary Peace Garden in the moat of Chateau de Péronne, a 13th Century castle in the Somme region of Northern France. I started Donegan Landscaping Dublin in 2001, aged 24.


On Garden Speaking and Talks:

I am a member of The Garden Media Guild and have spoken at music festivals and one-off public gardening demonstrations, to private gardening classes and also given talks to Gardening / Horticultural societies and professional associations.

In 2018 I featured on France3 TV and WeoTV (France) and was interviewed by LMFM, KCLR (Ireland) and BBC and US Radio. I also spoke at and hosted the garden talks at the inaugural Limerick Garden Festival and was the first Irish designer invited to speak at the Landscape Show, Battersea Park, London.
