Bloom – Five Stands to Visit if You’re Thinking about Studying Horticulture

bloom 2014

It’s that time of year again! The summer has crept up on us and for all the gardeners, the beginning of the summer is aptly marked by Bloom, Ireland’s largest Garden Festival, now in its 8th year. Running on the June bank holiday weekend from Thursday to Monday, it’s an excellent opportunity to see what is happening in the world of horticulture on our little green Island.
