|Hi I'm very interested in planting something soon either a small tree or flower that would blossom in October. I recently lost my baby and would love to mark the due date.

|Hi StephGary, and my sincere condolences for the loss of your baby.
I found a list of Irish Wildflowers in October: http://www.irishwildflowers.ie...
And, here are links to a few of them in our database:
Water Forget-Me-Not (Myosotis scorpioides)
Sea Thrift (Armeria maritima)
English Maiden (Silene dioica)
Ragged Robin (Silene flos-cuculi)
Crocosmia (Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora)
Curl-Top Smartweed (Persicaria lapathifolia)
For flowering trees you might consider
Strawberry Tree (Arbutus unedo)
Lilac (Syringa pubescens subsp. pubescens 'Palibin')

| I also wish you comfort and support. Gardens can do much to soothe the spirit.
For fall blooming plants you might try cyclamen which form a fall blooming ground cover. Turtlehead (chelone) is a perennial which blooms in the fall in pinks, purples or white. I just tried turtlehead this year and was quite pleased with how they did. I don't know how they would do in Ireland, but I've looked at a hardiness zone map and it is similar to what we have in the South.
I have seen that the True Forget-Me-Nots also did well and bloomed in the fall. Unlike the turtlehead they are evergreen in my garden.
