Pallet Planting Workshop – Sat 2nd March


Led by Peadar Lynch and organised by Cultivate and funded by DCC, this free workshop demonstrated how to line, fill and plant out a standard pallet, taking advantage of vertical space along the garden wall quickly, easily and economically.

The weather was lovely on the day and all seemed to enjoy it greatly. Here’s some photos from that sunny afternoon in the garden.
