Kitchen Gardens at Renvyle House

We’ve been so fortunate to have a lovely week or so of warm sunny weather which has helped the kitchen gardens and gardens throughout the grounds.  The Bluebell Woods are looking beautiful and the apple trees in the new orchard are coming into blossom.

Our CEO Mr Ronnie Counihan has been planning the upgrade to our Kitchen Garden at Renvyle House since early Spring this year with some helpful tips from organic gardener and author Klaus Laitenberger (who will also be giving loads of tips and advice at our ‘Gardening Weekend‘ this October 19th – 21st 2018) .

The additional poly tunnels were put up, the seedlings were carefully tended to and moved from one tunnel to the other as they matured.  Some of the hardier plants were replanted outdoors in the Herb & Kitchen garden. After carefully considering what we would need for our Restaurant; the various herbs, salad leaves and vegetables were planned for and planted throughout the Summer with very fruitful results with the very freshest ingredients 50 paces from the kitchen!  You can taste the difference!
