from the Secret Garden
What an amazing summer so far, almost makes up for the winter! We hope that you are making the most of your garden and enjoying the fruits of your labour. Although this is a quiet time in the garden, remember to water, weed & feed. Keep deadheading roses and annuals to keep plants flowering for longer. This is also a good time to sow vegetable seeds for quick croping plants (beetroot, radish, salads, scallions,carrots, french beans) as well as winter-hardy crops such as kale, cabbage and winter lettuce. We have three events coming up in July:
1) Bee Day – In association with The Duhallow Beekeepers Group Come along to find out all you need to know about keeping bees. Practical demonstrations, advice and a chance to quiz the experts on all things Bee!
Local honey for sale. Specials served in the Troom, including Cream Tea.
“if the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.” Albert Einstein [read more …] “The Secret Garden – July Events”

Father’s Day is virtually upon us and, if this takes you by surprise or you had forgotten the exact date then Millstreet Country Park is here to tell you that Sunday 20th June is the one to remember.
Father’s and Grandfather’s sadly usually end up with generic gifts for Father’s Day from their loved ones, simply because of the lack of real options for Father’s Day gifts. Dads can be tough to buy for, and depending on their interests, there may be no obvious choice. So how about something more thoughtful than a tie for Dear Old Dad this year?
Fancy doing something different? Then why not take your Dad outside this year? Why not visit Millstreet Country Park and plan a number of Father’s Day activities and make this special day an enjoyable and memorable event for him and for the whole family.
