Located in Wicklow,just 40 minutes outside Dublin, Tim Wallis is the garden expert at the center, who'll help you in all the problems you encounter while gardening. Under the expert guidance of Tim, in no time you can be an expert gardener too. The day begins with a talk with Tim, who later answers questions if any one has any thing to enquire about gardening. Further more, demonstrations and a workshop is included in the programme. Later on a guided tour of the exotic garden ends the day.

The availability of the gift and plant shop is a delight to all the visitors. Plants demonstrated in the workshop can be bought from the Garden Centre which is known as having one of the largest stocks of ornamental trees in Ireland.

General pruning, lawn mowing, weed problem, composting and mulching and returning the goodness to the soil are some of the few topics that help to make you from an amateur gardener to an expert one.

Set in 19 gardens, either side of the Harlequin walk is a vast selection of ideas for anyone interested in gardens, planning a new garden or thinking of revamping an existing one. Unusual trees, shrubs and plants marry together with more common varieties in an endless display of year round colours. Water, stone, wood, pergolas and sculptures all play their part in creating interesting layout concepts that can be adapted with a small or large garden alike.

A magnificent timbered pavilion has been designed to accommodate both a shop and a spacious tea house, serving delicious lunches and fine afternoon teas. Take time to browse in the shop, where you will find gifts to suit all ages and tastes. A wide range of horticultural products is included to meet your garden needs.
