I was just wondering what is the most popular gardening show that people would attend. I would think that it would be "The Spring House and Garden Show" but there may be others l don't know of.

Possibly.
But I have heard that next year bord glas / bord bia are creating a show called something like "Ireland in bloom".
It is being spoken of like an Irish "Chelsea Flower show". We'll see......

That show sounds good. Probably a good place to exibit your horticultural mouldings foamcutter. Have you created any more since the last time.

Sb,
Looking forward to see what information is available for the show. It will be difficult to measure it against others as it will be new and untested.

We haven't created any more new planters since, it's not really the time of year that people are re-designing their gardens. We are still researching the market and trying to get feedback from designers & potential users.

We did create a piece for the Plan Expo trade show in the RDS recently and won a commendation for it. It was called " The loveseat", it's an example of how a shape can be created in EPS (expanded polystyrene foam) and coated to be used in an external situation.

This show has the makings of something good.

"BLOOM 2007, a new national gardening show of the highest international standard in 2007, 2008 and 2009. This commitment for three years will ensure that Ireland will become a showcase for the very best in gardening and environmental developments. BLOOM 2007 will be a shop window for our landscape gardeners, horticultural producers and nature watchers. It will take place in The Phoenix Park over the bank holiday weekend 2 - 4 June 2007."

Teh Kildare growers show is probably the best trade show in Ireland, although GLEE in the UK and the show in Essien is always great to attend.

For public Gardenign Scotland is always good, held outside of Edinburgh, and I personally enjoy the various open garden days held throughout our county.

Verge,
I see that "Expo-events" haven't anything on Bloom 2007 yet, but they organise "The MyHome.ie Spring House & Garden Show". They probably don't want exhibitors to jump ship. There is only a couple of months between them.

Gareth,
Is it just plants at the Kildare show or does it cover all areas eg tools, hard surfacing, landscaping materials etc

I see tickets for this show went on sale yesterday - 20e at the door and 15e if you buy in advance and enter before noon. I hope there will be a good balance between trade stands and garden displays.

After checking out the Bloom 07 website it looks like it will be an event not to miss.....or am I just being taken in by the marketing hype Question
If the weather is like the last couple of weeks it should make for an interesting day out.
