The RHSI is running a survey to find out which plants do best and where, in Ireland. Sounds like a good idea - feel free to take part, as it is open to everyone.

(From RHSI email):
Do you know what plants work well in the Irish Landscape? Share your knowledge so we can all gain. Ireland's first survey of preferred landscape perennials

Ireland has a wealth of collective horticultural knowledge, but this knowledge is often lost or even ignored with successive generations repeating the planting mistakes of the past.

The most frequently referred to texts for plant use in Ireland typically arise from England. A country with a significantly different climate than our own.

Some attempts have been made to tackle the indigenous plant knowledge-gap and the internet has allowed professionals to communicate, but the industry still does not have a reliable reference list to work from. This survey is an attempt to collect and share some of our collective knowledge on what plants really work in the Irish landscape. With your input we will begin a process which stands to benefit us all and in time lead to more appropriate and resilient landscape plantings.

We are seeking your input on perennial landscape plants, which you have personally used and found to be appropriate, robust and resilient for use in the Irish landscape.

Follow the link below to participate.

At question 4, (What area of the landscape sector do you operate in?) type in 'private garden'.

Please feel free to add comments where appropriate. Data collected in the survey will be made available in the Autumn issue of Horticulture Connected and subsequently via HortiTrends.com.



Regards
