Keen gardeners from across Wexford and beyond are invited to take part in the seventh Annual Gardening Show, which takes place September 9 until September 10, in the Irish Agricultural Museum at Johnstown Castle.

New to the show this year, families can enter a novelty competition for the best-looking scarecrow, while children can also enter their weird and wonderful plant-art form.
