As British TV presenter James Alexander Sinclair, Ireland’s gardening expert Gerry Daly and Shawna Lee Coronado, US author of Gardening Nude, make it to the list of speakers at the BLOOM 2010 garden festival in the Phoenix Park, the event is going to be a success for sure. Running from June 3-7, the Ireland’s largest gardening, food and family event will also feature country’s top horticulturists, who will demonstrate their green art through some 25 stunning show gardens.
Attendees stand a chance to learn how to raise a designer garden within a limited budget. Bord Bia, the organizer states that this year’s event will revolve around the themes of sustainability, local food and grow your own. Don’t forget to see the rain garden to imbibe the tenets of rainwater collection. Equally enticing is the garden growing on industrial salvages of the 19th to 21st century; it is a life-size, 3.5-meter tall sculpture. The Office of Public Works, offers its 70-acre site for the festival.
