June 2020 Garden Blog

June in the Victorian Walled Garden here in Kylemore Abbey is always a very busy time for us gardeners. All summer bedding and vegetable seedlings are planted out and growing strong, especially during these very humid conditions we experience at the moment.  The same counts for the weeds of cause. A constant hoeing in between […]

Garden Blog May 2020

Welcome back to the May edition of my monthly garden blog from behind the walls of the Victorian Walled Garden here in Kylemore Abbey & Garden. Experiencing the driest  April ever, well at least in the last 20 years, with only 31.4 ml of rain, we were able to get a good head start on […]

Garden Diary March & April 2020

Welcome back to our spring edition of our monthly garden blogs for the Victorian Walled Garden here in Kylemore Abbey & Garden. Strange and uncertain times hit us here the same as everywhere else. The closure of Kylemore Abbey & Garden to the public did not stop the spring flowers here in the Walled Garden […]

Garden Diary January & February 2020

A very ‘wintery’ welcome back to our monthly garden diary from the Victorian Walled Garden here in Kylemore Abbey. I thought I could start the first diary for 2020 with a spring theme but the current cold spell and stormy weather leads to a different one. The first heads of Crocuses, Daffodil’s, Muscaris (Grape Hyacinths) […]

Garden Diary December 2019

Welcome back to my last garden blog from the Victorian Walled Garden here in Kylemore Abbey for this year. We are in full swing with the winter preparation of the garden. The first frost appeared last night and it’s time to wrap up things like the outside water connections and taps for example. We are […]

Garden Blog October & November 2019

The last of the autumn colours are fading and it is time to prepare for the winter season here behind the walls of the Victorian Walled Garden in Kylemore Abbey. We already experienced night frosts and cold snaps which seems quite early for us here on the western shores of Ireland. It is time to […]

Garden Blog September 2019

Welcome back to our September edition of the garden blog for Kylemore Abbey. There is nearly no way around then to start with the most important topic here in Ireland, the weather! We must have had four (or even five…) different seasons within the last two weeks. Temperatures reached up to 26 degrees Celsius mid […]

Garden Diary August 2019

It is early morning here in the Walled Garden of Kylemore Abbey and I am walking through the six-acre tranquility to take my monthly pictures. The rain, which we had plenty off for the whole month of August, just stopped and gives me the needed opportunity to catch every angle of the garden with my […]

Garden Diary July 2019

Welcome to our high summer garden diary from our Victorian Walled Garden. It is the second of August already and somebody came to me yesterday and said it is the first day of autumn! I must have looked a bit shocked and started to explain that in Germany August would be your main summer month. […]

Garden Blog June 2019

Welcome back to our June edition of our Garden Blog. We experienced a lovely spell of dry weather this June, our rainfall was just around 95 ml for the month. The heat in the recent two weeks made plants, especially in our double Herbaceous Border jump and is creating a lovely display along the 80 […]
