Our last video story for Rhododendron Week 2021 is with Dr. Matthew Jebb, Director, National Botanic Gardens of Ireland, and Seamus O’Brien, Head Gardener, National Botanic Gardens of Ireland Kilmacurragh. Here they give a brief overview of the conservation purposes of the collections at Kilmacurragh and look to the future 🌺

In early April, the Gardens at Kilmacurragh are marked by the splendour of their two centuries old Rhododendron collection bursting into flower. This year, the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland and the Office of Public Works are delighted to present a Rhododendron Festival, in collaboration with the RHS Rhododendron, Camellia & Magnolia Group.
