I would like to invite you to the official launch of Rachel Darlington's "Journal of an Irish Garden" on Saturday 2nd Decembe 2017.
The event will be launched by Wexford's very own, Gerry Daly, and will take place in Bunclody's coolest venue, the Art Bank, from 17:30 where Rachel will do a reading from the book and will be signing copies. The book is for sale at €13.
Hope to see many of you there.

Journal of an Irish Garden (with forward by Helen Dillon) is a collection of columnist and plantsperson Rachel Darlington’s articles in the Irish Garden magazine from 2007 to 2015. It details her development from amateur gardener to owner of a garden open to the public. This book is, in essence, a horticultural journey. It is an odyssey of discovery, knowledge and fulfilment, while taking the not-so-occasional foray into the realms of iffy dress-sense, hypothermia and muck. This journey contains elements that most gardeners will recognise from their own endeavours.

"We follow the author’s development as a gardener and that of her garden, Douentza, which is a joy to visit, full of well-grown unusual plants and one of the up-and-coming Irish gardens."
—Helen Dillon, the Dillon Garden

"What really makes the book for me is the clear and ever-present love of plants. From the mundane to the rare, the plant mix is eclectic and the book peppered with handy tips for growing them."
—Jimi Blake, Hunting Brook Gardens
