Dermot has also written a number of books including ‘Roses Revealed’ and ‘Clondeglass Creating a garden paradise’.
GroMór 2018 Ambassador Dermot O’Neill; “Having a garden always encourages you to be outside to enjoy its beauty, having a place to sit and relax helps you feel well and be in contact with nature. It’s a place to watch garden birds visiting and seasonal insects like butterflies, which bring an added beauty to your garden. This can help you release your daily stresses and contribute to your overall health and wellbeing.”
“Gardening is easy and by understanding some of the basics you can help to improve your lifestyle. If you have a new home, the garden can easily be made into an extension of how you live – a place to enjoy, a place for children to play, a place to grow your own fruit and vegetables, somewhere to relax and enjoy. Creating a family garden is a place where everyone can get involved from the very young to the elderly. A garden can be a place of memories, a place of fun and enjoyment. It’s somewhere to commemorate special events, birthdays or anniversaries and to create and make magical moments.
