About The Irish Gardener, Peter Dowdall


About The Irish Gardener, Peter Dowdall:

All my life I have been interested in and worked in gardens, gardening, landscaping and garden design in Ireland and the UK. 

  • I only recommend and offer for sale, environmentally sound, sustainable and organic gardening products and plants.
  • Here, I can offer for sale plants and products which I like to use in my own garden and in gardens of clients for whom I am working. These are what you'll find in my garden shed so to speak.
  • In the real world I work as a garden designer and consultant: 
  • Maintaining and enhancing biodiversity is one of the challenges facing everyone at the moment and I feel responsible to create gardens which will do just that.

  • I present on RTE and TV3 television and on radio in Ireland and I am also the Garden Design and Gardening columnist for the Irish Examiner newspaper along with being a regular Features writer for The Irish Garden magazine.
  • I am passionate about gardens, gardening, landscaping and plants and I have hopefully managed to share my enthusiasm with many others and helped a few budding gardeners along the way.
  • I fervently believe that the garden offers us the solutions to nearly all of our modern day problems:
    • Our mental health benefits from just being outside in the Great Outdoors.
    • Our physical health is improved by the aerobic workout which a day gardening will provide and also by eating the fresh organic produce from the garden.
    • And the garden has  critical roles to play in counteracting the effects of climate change and slowing the rate of species extinction
