Duignan, a gardening writer and former television producer,
has created a beautiful garden in the mild, maritime climate
of southeast County Dublin. A self-confessed plantaholic,
she has amassed an extraordinary collection of plants - from
old, familiar favorites to plants that are on the cutting
edge of tenderness, rarity and current fashion. Old and new
have been plated together with flair and artistry and the
resulting combinations of color, shape and texture produce
pleasing and innovative compositions throughout the garden.
Of particular interest are the small-flowered clematis and a
good range of Pseudopanax.
