A crew from Canada's favourite breakfast television show, Canada AM, was in Wicklow to capture footage of the Garden County which will air to an audience of about 1.4 million people across Canada later this autumn.

Two of Canada's best-known celebrity gardeners, Mark Cullen and Denis Flanagan, were invited here by Tourism Ireland in Toronto to record segments for Canada AM and to research some of our wonderful gardens for articles they are writing for the Toronto Star newspaper and Landscape Ontario magazine, as well as for Canadablooms.com.

Their action-packed itinerary included filming at Powerscourt House & Gardens and at Mount Usher Gardens in Ashford.

Jayne Shackleford, Tourism Ireland Canada, said: 'We are absolutely delighted that Canada AM agreed to film in Wicklow and Ireland. It's a tremendous opportunity to showcase some of the very best of what we have to offer to a huge Canadian audience. Canada AM is the most popular morning TV show here in Canada and the segments filmed in Cork will be seen by an estimated 1.4 million viewers.'
