Bord Bia Bloom festival returns this June bank holiday weekend from 28th May to 1st June in the Phoenix Park, Dublin. With planning well underway, Bord Bia Bloom is calling for budding gardeners from Connaught counties to submit entries for the popular Postcard garden category. Postcard gardens offer passionate amateur gardeners, garden clubs, and groups a chance to showcase their talents to over 115,000 visitors attending the event.
The Postcard gardens are small 3m x 2m plots which can be used to represent a club, locality, special person or character from your community. Last year schools, communities, day care centres and resource centres from around Ireland brought themes such as autism, mental-wellbeing, climate change and children’s literature to life through flowers, planting, art and woodwork.
The Postcard Garden application form can be downloaded from BloominthePark.com and the closing date to apply is Monday, 2nd March 2020.
