In the above video, Dermot O'Neill visits Brian Wood, owner of Murphy and Wood Garden Centre in Dublin, in his own garden. Brian has spent his working life to date surrounded by plants, and it is clear to see how his passion is part of his everyday life.

Even though the garden is just quarter the size of a show garden at Chelsea, this magical place is like stepping into a living painting.

He explains how shape and form are of the utmost importance in his back garden, while his front garden is awash of flower and colour.
