Open gardens provide ideas and inspiration for many gardeners. So I have decided to add in a new feature into Master My Garden podcast where once a month I highlight an open garden. In this weeks episode of the podcast I am featuring the first of these open gardens.
In a great interview with Mary Keenan from Gash Gardens, Co.Laois in the midlands Ireland. Mary tells us all about the very interesting history of Gash Gardens and describes beautifully how the garden looks today. Mary also gives many tips to help people Master their own garden. She also describes the plant sales area which doesn't sell the run of the mill plants rather focussing on quality performers from Gash Gardens. I also live in Co.Laois but hadn't heard of the gardens until recently so I'm super excited to visit over the coming weeks below is a description of the garden from Gash Gardens website.
Nothing outside the garden gate suggests the extent or beauty of Gash Gardens. Once inside you are greeted by an amazing oasis packed with interesting and unusual plants to lure and inspire both the keen plants person and the garden novice. Colourful herbaceous borders, a large rock garden and a well established collection of trees, shrubs, rhododendrons and deliciously perfumed old style roses combine to present a succession of colour through all the seasons.
Visitors can sit inside a small rocky cavern known as the Moon House and watch gushing water cascade from above or enjoy the soothing ambience of still ponds and meandering streams. A hidden walkway leads through the fernery and on to the tranquility of a looped walk along the banks of the River Nore where nature abounds. Whether you are a keen gardener, an armchair gardener or a visitor looking for an enjoyable day out, then Gash Gardens is for you.

After I visit Gash Garden in the coming weeks I will write a blog to tell you all about my visit. This blog after published and previous blogs along with all podcast episodes are be available on my website
