Victorian Walled Kitchen Garden
The Victorian Walled Kitchen Garden is a two and a half-acre garden set in the grounds of the Phoenix Park Visitor Centre.
The Walled Garden is currently being restored to its original mid Victorian layout. The garden will inspire and educate the public on the horticultural skills involved in the design and layout of a Victorian Kitchen Garden, as well as the growing of fruit, vegetables and flowers, with colourful summer displays such as Sweet Pea, Chrysanthemums, Lupins and Campanula (Bellflower) along with a wide range of fruit and vegetables.
On the second Saturday of every month, the public are invited to meet the Phoenix Park Gardeners between 10.30 am and 12.30 pm in the Victorian Walled Kitchen Garden, set beside the Phoenix Park Visitor Centre. Catch up on what is happening through the seasons with soil preparation, plant propagation, crop growing, herbaceous plants and much more. Visitors should bring suitable footwear and raingear.
The gardens are open from 10am to 4.30pm daily all year round.
In addition, a daily account of planting and harvesting at the walled garden is being detailed by garden designer and writer, Fionnuala Fallon. Fionnuala's 'Urban Farmer' article can be found in the Property Section of the Irish Times.
