Fionnuala Fallon from irishtimes said that Traditionally one of the highlights of the Irish gardening season, for the second year in a row Ireland’s biggest gardening show, Bloom, will not be taking place in Dublin’s Phoenix Park this weekend because of the pandemic’s social-distancing restrictions.

But the unexpected silver lining for Irish gardeners is the new Easy Steps to Dream Gardens initiative, a series of really excellent online design packs that organiser Bord Bia has specially commissioned from some of the country’s best-known professional garden designers and landscape architects to mark this year’s virtual event.

From the challenges of coastal gardening to creating family-friendly, nature-friendly, self-sustaining outdoor spaces, the seven individual packs contain oodles of valuable, practical advice and clever professional design tips along with a scaled garden plan (each design is based on a space measuring 9m by 15m but could be easily adapted), a detailed planting plan, and a comprehensive plant list. All are available to download for free from the Bord Bia website.
