The August issue of The Irish Garden magazine has a very good article by Fionuala Fallon on the RHSI walled garden in Russborough with lots of photos of the garden and the volunteers hard at work.

VISIT A GARDEN - RHSI members can visit free, or at reduced cost, almost 40 fabulous gardens around Ireland. Members and their guests can also get inspiration from the private gardens of other members as part of the Member Gardens programme.
