I’m originally from Cork city. I never had a garden. I didn’t know the difference between an annual and a perennial. I hadn’t a clue!

But I always had house plants and when I did get my first garden in the 90s, it just fascinated me to see the impact of each little thing that you would do, from how the insects would interact with certain flowers to what birds would be attracted to.

And so my interest grew from there.
