Blarney Castle News
August has been and gone and we are starting to look towards the autumn. There is a distinct coolness in the air, and we’ve had a couple of misty mornings, which are always a sign of the changing season.......
Blarney Castle is delighted to have won Irelands Tree of the Year competition. Our magnificent Yew Tree located above the Witch’s Kitchen was in the running with 4 other trees from around the country.
July has been a pretty good month for us in the gardens. I was worried about a possible drought, but we have been lucky enough to get plenty of rain showers to balance out the fine weather.....
June has been an awkward month in the gardens. Cold nights have meant a slow start for many of our vegetables in the Kitchen Garden. It looks as though things are finally coming around though...........
The gardens are an absolute riot of colour at the moment and I’m constantly surprised by some new flower each day. Several years of planting is starting to pay dividends......
For this month’s blog I have decided to mix things up a bit, so as well as the usual monthly updates and information I will focus in on a specific area of the gardens.........
