TREES

Standard trees:  There are many tree varieties available for smaller or bigger gardens. The come in all shapes and sizes, evergreen, deciduous, flowering, bearing fruits and nuts etc.
Given that many of us have limited space in which to garden, make sure the trees you select are right for their surroundings, in terms of proportion as well as for their decorative value.

Native Irish trees: Our most common native trees include oak, ash, hazel, birch, Scots pine, rowan and willow. 

Fruit trees:  Fruit trees are a lovely sight in every season. They produce flowers, colour and of course fruit. September is an ideal time to harvest fruit from your garden trees.

Multi-stem trees: Multi-stemmed trees are hugely popular for lots of reasons. They can be very attractive as a focus point tree in the garden. The demand has rocketed over the last few years. Jaquimontii Birch with its striking white bark is one that is very much sought after. Try this one in groups of three or five and you’ll love the results.

Specimen trees:  A specimen tree is a plant, which has particularly beautiful or interesting features and well worth looking at. Multi-stemmed trees can also serve as engaging specimen trees.

Jap. Maples: The Japanese maple has hundreds of varieties that come in various sizes and shapes. They have a large assortment of leaf shapes and colours that range from shades of green to orange, red, purple, and variegated.

SHRUBS

Evergreen shrubs: Evergreens are great for providing year-round colour, texture, and even privacy with evergreen hedging. There are thousands of types of evergreen shrubs in every size and shape for your garden.
When you're planning your garden, don't forget to pay attention to how tall and wide the plant gets, especially if you're considering a fast-growing shrub. Evergreens offer our wildlife shelter and food.

Flowering shrubs: A Flowering shrub is a perennial which bears several woody stems at ground level and a beautiful display of flowers which lasts for weeks or in some cases months.  The non flowering shrub is grown for its colourful foliage or shape. Flowering shrubs are excellent for pollinators.

Soft fruits: Soft fruit plants are strawberries, raspberries, black and red currants, gooseberries, the list of soft fruit plants is extensive. All these and more can be grown in our gardens.

Grasses: Ornamental grasses can be used to great effect in our gardens, from providing a calming presence to more exuberant  flowering plants to being the only focus of the design. There are grasses for damp or dry soil, shady as well as sunny situations. Many are ideal for gravel gardens, prairie planting, wildlife gardens and are great to add to the cutting garden; others perform well in containers.

Ferns: Ferns are eye catching with their beautiful fronds or lacy leaf.  Very easy to grow once you have the correct conditions for that particular plant, thriving in shade or semi shade.  They look great with other plants providing a soft ground colour.

HEDGING

Evergreen hedging: Evergreen hedging plants, whichn include Leylandii, Laurel, Portugal Laurel, Thuja, Privet and Griselinia as well as Specimen Conifers.  Evergreen hedging is ideal for screening and privacy.

Deciduous hedging: Like most shrubs and trees, a deciduous hedge loses its leaves in autumn.  Some types such as beech are partly deciduous and retain their brown wrinkled foliage in the winter months. ... As regards maintenance, the deciduous plant does not differ essentially from the evergreen.

Privacy hedging: One of the most used choices for privacy hedging is the cherry laurel. A privacy hedge will add to your seclusion, while also adding shape perimeter and interest to your garden. A lush green hedge will act as a natural and attractive screen.

 Box hedging: Buxus Sempervirens or Box Hedging (otherwise known as the buxus hedge) a very slow growing but hardy evergreen hedging plant. It has a very dense growth habit with small glossy dark leaves. Perfect for low border hedging or in containers.

Bees In Your Garden


“Bees account for one in every three mouthfuls of food we consume every day.”

Bees play an incredibly important role in our ecosystem. Honeybees, both wild and domestic, are responsible for about 80% of all pollination worldwide.
.
What Do Bees Do?
Bees and plants have a symbiotic relationship. Bees help plants to pollinate their seed, allowing a plant to reproduce. Whilst a bee receives nectar which they then give to their larvae (baby bee) as a source of energy. The bee also uses the nectar to make honey.

Bee-Friendly Plants laughing


Anise Hyssop: A top nectar producing plant.
Artichoke: produces nectar and pollen for bees and butterflies.
Borag: nectar and pollen producing annual herb.
Butterfly Bush: wonderful for bees and butterflies and easy to grow.

Cotoneaster: small, white flowers followed by rich, red berries.
