Hi all Irish gardeners! Very Happy

I hope it's OK for me to be here even though I'm not living in Ireland (yet), but my husband (English) and I are planning to move to Ireland in the near future and we are reading up on everything Irish so we are ready when the move is due.
I'm a very keen gardener and have been so since the 80's.

I joined this forum to learn more about how you in Ireland do the gardening.

Thank you for listening Very Happy

Wicklow would be lovely or near Blessington area but we are both planning to work in Dublin but live outside, so as close as possible to Dublin so we don't have to commute to far. We have a friend (two) in Dublin and we will go back in October again for 11 nights so we can travel around the coast and find out more about Ireland and get a prober feel for the place and at the same time try to work out where we can live so we don't have to travel too far or too long to work.

Wink Well that's the thing. Ireland (Dublin) wants lots of Swedish speaking people so that's why we are planing to move over. Sweden don't want me any more. I was made redundant back in November 2004 and now I have just turned 50 in December so I'm dead meat and should be lying on the compost heap in their eyes. My husband might loose his job (again) at the end of this year so that's why we are now talking about to move to Ireland where they need us. My husband have been here for 18 years now so he can speak Swedish.

Hi Diana,

Welcom to the forum. I think you have picked the right time to come here, houses are a lot cheaper than they were, and you will probably find the cost of living cheaper here than Sweeden. I lived abroad for many years and have many Danish and Sweedish friends who think our life style here is great and not as expensive as their homes.

Grow your own movement is fantastic here, and a lot of people are getting back to basics, growing their own food etc. This forum is very informative and will give you lots of help. The google search bar at the top is the best gardening tool around!!

Let us know what you grow in Sweeden, and aboutt eh growing seasons.

Best of luck with the move.

Maeve
