Club member Philippa Thomas  is an accomplished gardener with a particular expertise in orchids. Her own garden, while not extensive, is full of unusual treasures. In spite of her passion for plants which climb walls, trail over arches, and spill down the sides of pots, her garden forms a harmonious whole.

Philippa writes a regular gardening article for the Dalkey Community Council newsletter. We are delighted that Philippa and the Editor of the newsletter have agreed that we can reproduce these articles on our website. You can read Philippa's Letter HERE
