Last weekend was one that was full of garden visits, great plants and meeting some of my gardening idols. All of this came thanks to the Carlow Garden Festival. The ten day festival sees some of the many gardens Carlow has to offer, hold special events and tours for the gardening public. I managed to get to a couple of the events and garden visits over the weekend with Paul Smyth, who you may know from his guest blog posts here on Beyond The Wild Garden.
The first event I went to was the launch of the festival, which saw the lovely Carol Klein give a talk about her cottage garden in England. I was in heaven with this talk becuase I love Carol! She is such a great plantsperson and I have loved watching her tv shows over the years. Not to mention flicking through her books that I have.
