Did anyone watch Dermot's Secret Garden on RTE1 last night ? What a magical project it seems to be, and how encouraging for anyone starting a garden, however big or small. Walled gardens seem to hold a particular magic somehow, don't they ? I sometimes think reading that book "The Secret Garden" as a child has influenced me more than I realise.
Anyway, if you missed last night's episode tune in next Thursday for an inspirational half hour....especially admirable as the poor man became seriously ill during the making of the series and I'm hoping I will see the garden becoming an important part of his recovery.

Hi Sive,

Yes I did watch the programme, and the garden was just magical. I had heard all about it on the Mooney Radio programme so I was really interested to see the garden.

It is amazing how a garden can help with the healing process. I had an illness that went on for almost 4 years, and the garden was my saviour, even when I couldn't work in the garden, I could dream about what I would do, when I was fit again. My poor husband had to do all the physical work but it actually helped get him interested in gardening, and now he is always reading threads on this website.

I hope Dermot opens his garden to the public as I would just love to walk around it.

Great to see we can do gardening programmes as good if not better than the rest. Well done Dermot, can't wait for the rest of the series.

Thanks very much for the link.

If I won the lottery, I'd love to have a walled garden, with black friable soil, brick walls and a massive, tall, heated greenhouse.
