Dr. David Robinson 1928 - 2004  

 Dr. David Robinson was a passionate horticulturist who made an important contribution to its promotion in Ireland and internationally, from research and development to training and education.

Born in Belfast, he studied at Reading and Cornell Universities and completed his doctorate studies at Queen’s University, Belfast.

His lifelong study on weed control gained him international recognition. His 3 hectare garden Earlscliffe in Howth, that he managed alone with his weed control techniques was designated one of Ireland’s National Plant Heritage Gardens because of the large number of rare and tender plants from the southern hemisphere that flourish there.
