We were all very excited to see on of our students Ashling Harrison take part in RTE television garden competition Super Garden. This was Ashling's first attempt at designing a garden , and we were very impressed by her. We are keeping our fingers crossed for her, if she wins, she will get to do her garden at Bloom, just like last year's winner Alexandra Hollingsworth. Alexandra was one of our home study students.
Well done Ashling, we are proud of you!
A Day's Work with The New Growth Project
We have been busy planting plants in our cut flower garden and sowing seeds of Parsnips and Carrots. In the tunnels we have been pricking out seedlings and potting on plants. Hesperis matronalis (sweet rocket), Acer wilsonii and Verbascum chiaxii 'Album; are amongst the plants we were handling this week. Watch the video below for a flavour of a day with The New Growth Project.
