If you're in Kilkenny on Saturday 13th June or interested in picking up some plants or local crafts for your garden, you might like to head over to Rothe House & Garden where I'll be chatting about growing vegetables in containers at 11.30am and Fionn O Nuallain, the Holistic Gardener, will be talking at 2pm. Garden entry free, €5pp admittance to the talks. Lots of family entertainment too and the gardens really are worth looking at!
