This week's jobs around the garden

Bruno Nicolai

There’s a very special open garden this afternoon, from 1pm to 6pm.

The garden of Bruno Nicolai, Castle Road, Blackrock, Cork, is an eye-opener as to what can be achieved in a small space.

This garden is notable not just for being a collection of rare and unusual exotic plants, but more importantly, as a stunning example of good design and thoughtful use of plants and planting. 

It’s calm, aesthetically beautiful, interesting, and deceptive with surprises lurking around each corner. 

Make the most of the late September sunshine and support the fantastic work of Marymount Hospice by enjoying a walk around one of Corks finest suburban gardens.
