Well done Sophie.

The wind is howling here, and its time for a bit of sofa gardening, or perhaps Sophie gardening. Last summer we sponsored the vegetable plants for a show garden at Bloom. There is an earlier post here. Last week the garden, designed by Sophie von Maltzen, has won the Irish Landscape Institute Design Award 2009 in the category of Residential Landscapes. It was filmed by TV3 which you can see here and view it 3D here. Perhaps a few of the design elements could go in your garden plan for next year. The garden is still looking for a permanent home where the maximum number of visitors could benefit from it. It could also act as a hub creating a community park around it. If anyone has any ideas, a transition town project perhaps, do get in touch.

  1. Is this the right place to respond to the garden looking for a home?
    We are developing a community garden in Mayfield community arts centre cork. We have made some nice progress to date but would love to develop it more. Maybe you want to donate to a group starting from scratch. We run a FETAC horticulture programme which provides training for people with disabilities. Let us know if you would like to consider sending even part of the garden our way. www.mayfieldarts.org info@mayfieldarts.org
