I am really looking forward to the Bloom in the Park event coming up this long weekend. I love flowers, tranquil gardens, fresh produce and handmade crafts and this event has it all. Bloom is taking place in the Phoenix Park, Dublin from 28th May until 1st June.
What a lovely way to spend the long weekend. I am convinced the weather is going to be absolutely fabulous so I am off to buy a picnic blanket.
One of the gardens featuring in this year’s show will be the Sleeping Tiger by garden designer Sheena Vernon. Sheena has put together a credit crunch garden for those of you who don’t have loads of money to spend. The budget is 3,000 euro and if you have to move you can take the garden with you! One of her tips for saving money is if you don’t have the money for big ceramic pots why not paint the black plastic pots the plants come in.
