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.
Bookings Now Being Taken for 2017/ 2018
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.

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.
