Carmel 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.
