Quality Mark Plant Village
Do you want to buy Irish plants? Look no further than the Quality Mark Plant Village where a selection of Bord Bia Quality Assured plants from Irish nurseries will be available to buy. Located close to the show gardens, when you spot the Quality Mark on a plant you know it has been grown in Ireland to the highest Bord Bia Quality standards.
You can leave any plants or flowers you buy at the Bord Bia Bloom Plant Crèche while you explore the rest of the show. In 2019, over 120,000 plants were stored here safely and the team will help you carry your new purchases to the car when you are ready to leave.
The Bord Bia Bloom Plant Clinic, presented by The Irish Garden magazine, marshals the collective horticultural brains of more than 20 expert contributors to The Irish Garden magazine to deal with your garden queries. All of them are trained, experienced horticulturists and gardeners.
Bring photographs on your smartphone, or samples of the affected plant material, kept in a plastic bag to maintain plant hygiene. Located in the Floral Marquee at Bloom, we will be wearing our crisp white lab coats so that you can pick us out in the throng.
In keeping with long-standing policy of The Irish Garden magazine, non-chemical solutions will be offered as a priority. The Irish Garden editor Gerry Daly and his expert colleagues are looking forward to solving your gardening problems and are intrigued as to what might turn up during the five days of the June holiday weekend!
