Clondeglass: Creating a Garden Paradise, Hardback Book

Clondeglass: Creating a Garden Paradise Hardback



When Dermot O'Neill bought Clondeglass over a decade ago, the derelict house and totally overgrown walled garden were on the edge of collapse.

Here, Dermot takes us on a tour of the different sections of the totally renovated garden, showing his particular plant passions and interests, covering trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs and structures.

We start in the Rose Garden, exploring the wide range of roses, before moving onto the Double Borders and Courtyard.

Inside the Polytunnel we find a host of vegetables and more tropical plants.

Then along the West Border we come to The Temple, a timber haven to relax and escape the rain!

The Potager is devoted to vegetables and fruit trees, including a number of rare species and Irish heritage varieties.

Finally The Poultry, with Dermot's own Toulouse geese.

Remarkable before and after photographs document the enormous changes, as well as plans to show what's still to come.
