June Blake's Garden

Sensational three acre garden in Co Wicklow, Ireland, created by former jeweller and sheep farmer June Blake since 2002 when she decided to grow plants to sell and became a part-time nurserywoman.

Over recent years the garden has become one of the most highly regarded in Ireland. June's characterful granite Arts & Crafts house forms the still centre from which exuberant planting explodes through the year, reaching a crescendo in August when the hot border pulses with reds, oranges and yellows amongst the jungly leaves of stooled paulownias, cotinus, aralias and bamboos while elsewhere magentas, violets and silvers shimmer in the sunlight against effervescent sprays of grass flowers such as Stipa gigantea and Oryzopsis miliacea. Sculpted landforms encircle the garden forming a bridge between cultivation and the surrounding landscape and an inverted tree trunk is reflected in a still rectangular pool. Bold and brilliant with lots to teach all gardeners about drama and planting.
