So its Irelands largest gardening festival attracting visitors from all over the country and RTE only see fit to give it a 30 minute slot on RTE1 this Friday at 7.30pm?

I just scanned through all the irish channels on Sky and that's all I'm getting for Bloom... Am I missing something?

No, Its a trade show yous pay your money and you get what you see.
Over plantedand priced designed gardens
expensive organic food
Trade stands selling everything from Jacuzzi to window claners.
Plants imported and home grown and over priced
and any other gimmick that will turn a few bob
Oh and whoever the big sponsers of the gardens are gets a prize after all it needs sponsers to continue.
No your missing nothing.
There are loads of interesting gardens that will be open to the public up and down the country throughout the season check out garden festivals.
