Met up with Peter Donegan who will not be at Bloom this year. Peter constructed imaginative gardens at Bloom in 2007 and 2008 and has been great help to first timer Rebecca Thorn in making sure her concept gets completed on time. Well done Peter good to see such fantastic selfless co-operation. See more about Peters other energetic passions

The Bloom team under direction of Gary Graham are doing a fantastic job again his year despite challenging budgets they have stuck to their vison of presnting a top class internatinal Garden Festival righ her ein the heart of Dublin. They deserve a serious support for this dedication and resolve.

One of the first and most encouraging signs of change in public service dedication to changing the awareness of children and aults to vegetable and fruit gardening has been the walled fruit flower and vegetable garden run by the office of public works. This should not be missed when visiting Bloom!! I visited it yesterdan and the qualityof work, presentation, content, range and scale has increased again this year. This is an important piece of work and deserves recognition. See more on Park activities here . Together with the An Bord Bia Food Dudes program this garden at the Phoenix Park marks positive chage in the perception of Horticulture as a "Nescessary Life Skill" see our MyPlant Article from March 2009.

More reports and pictures from Bloom next week.
