Seamus 0’Brien of Kilmacurragh

Seamus O’Brien is Head Gardener at Kilmacurragh, part of the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland. He talks us through his career which involved working at many of the greatest Irish gardens, as well as taking part in botanical expeditions to China, Tibet, India, Myanmar and Chile. Kilmacurragh is a very exciting place to work – a 54 acre former estate south of Dublin, Seamus is overseeing the creation of wild flower meadows, borders, and the regeneration of a significent tree collection. All very much with the conservation of plant genetic diversity in mind.
