To celebrate their 30th Anniversary in business, Skibbereen’s Deelish Garden Centre is presenting a series of eight talks and workshops given by experts from all over Munster touching on a wide range of gardening activities.

Rain Chase, Manager of Deelish stated, “We appreciate the support of the local community so much and we wanted to give something back.”

The Talks and Workshops will be held on Sunday afternoons at 2:30pm, from May 4 through June 29. The talks are all free but there will be a small charge for the workshops. Booking is advised, particularly for the workshops, as space is limited.

The series will kick off on May 4 with Verney Naylor, the well-known garden designer, speaking on Colour in Your Garden. The next week, May 11, Cathy Eastman from Gortbrack Organic Farm in Kerry will hold a workshop on Organic Composting and Wildflowers.

On May 25, Madeline McKeever of Brown Envelope Seeds will talk on Growing Edible Delights From Seed, while on June 1, Graham Strouts from the Kinsale College of Further Education will speak on Permaculture and Exotic Edibles.

Jean Perry, from Glebe Gardens in Baltimore will give a talk on Cut Flowers and Preserves on June 8, and the willow craftsman Martin O’Flynn will give a workshop on Willow Plant Supports and Basketry on June 15.

The popular garden writer Joyce Russell will speak on Growing Vegetables on June 22 and the series will conclude with Ben Russell giving a workshop on Garden Photography on June 29.

There is always a relaxed atmosphere at Deelish and the talks should reflect this; there will be plenty of time for questions and it is hoped that these talks will generate some lively discussions.

Those attending will also have the chance to have a look at the many rare and exotic plants at Deelish, which is well known for having one of the most extensive plant collections available in Ireland.
