A woodland haven in Tipp with 40,000 plant species

It is medically proven that a walk among trees lowers blood pressure and reduces stress levels. This is just one of the reasons why I take every opportunity to visit gardens and arboretums, for apart from the pleasure of such walks, they help distract me from thinking about the proposed cuts to the agricultural budget and what this might mean for the future of farming and forestry.

Recently, I found myself in Dundrum, Co Tipperary, strolling through the wonderful Celtic Plantarum that was established 25 years ago by Peter Alley.
