Description:

Gardeners' Corner- a real get-up-and-go programme for all gardeners from novice to expert. There’s always lots of advice for everyone, with everything from the best in Irish landscape gardening to back-yard creativity on a small scale... herbs, alpines, bulbs, trees, shrubs, herbaceous material - the list is almost endless. We're practical too, with loads of advice for the season, whatever it is. We also have the latest news and views in horticulture from around the Province. Once a month we make a roadshow visit with two experts to one of the many gardening clubs or other societies who invite us.
