Sa chlár seo, dírítear ar cheann de na gnáthóga is cáiliúla in Éirinn i dtaobh na bplandaí eisceachtúla a bhfásann inti; an ghnáthóg aolchloiche. Fiosraíonn Aedín Ní Thiarnaigh faoi na plandaí is coitianta a fhásann sa ghnáthóg creagach uathúil seo agus foghlaimíonn sí faoi mar a théann na plandaí i ngleic leis an tírdhreach lom, sceirdiúil. Déantar iniúchadh ar an Magairlín Meidhreach, an Ruithéal Rí, an Sú Talún Fiáin agus an t-Aiteall.

Téann Aedín go Dúiche Sheoighe, áit a gcasann sí leis an gceardaí aitheanta, Carina Coyne, a bhíonn ag dathú olla le bláthanna fiáine dá comhlacht Joyce Country Wool.

Casann muid ar an Dr Amanda Browne chomh maith, éiceolaí agus luibheolaí, a thugann léargas dúinn ar mar a théann na plandaí aolchloiche i ngleic le dúshláin na tírdhreiche.
