Gardens and Horticulture
The show garden space at Bloom brings together some of Ireland’s most experienced, creative and hard-working garden designers and horticulturists who have worked tirelessly to create the 22 stunning show gardens which form the heart of the show. These show gardens are remarkable, not only in their beauty and variety, but also in their ability to communicate important themes and bring attention to issues such as sustainability, biodiversity, water conservation and mental health.
Every year at Bloom we feature a number of small but perfectly formed postcard gardens, demonstrating that size doesn’t matter when it comes to wonderful outdoor spaces! Created by amateur gardeners from community groups, schools and training groups from around Ireland, these showpieces represent their club, locality or a special person from their area.Read More
Sculpture Garden Showcasing the work of over 40 artists, the Bloom Sculpture in the Park feature provides visitors with an opportunity to interact with the best of Irish outdoor art in a garden setting. The right piece of sculpture will breathe new life into the garden, create dialogue within the space and add value to your garden or outdoor space.
Victorian Walled Kitchen Gardens
Bloom visitors can enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Victorian Walled Kitchen Garden in the Phoenix Park Visitors Centre. The Victorian Walled Kitchen Garden was originally part of the Under Secretary’s Demesne and later the Papal Nuncios residence and was used to supply fresh fruit and vegetables to these residences.
