Bloom At Home – This summer Bord Bia is encouraging the Irish public to come together and Bloom from their own homes.

Bord Bia's Bloom At Home will feature a series of online events, including live Q&As, panels, cookery demonstrations with quality assured in season produce and entertainment from some of Bord Bia Bloom‘s long-time participants, bringing a flavour of Ireland's largest gardening and lifestyle festival directly into people's homes this June Bank Holiday weekend.

From preparing vibrant flower beds and much-loved house plants, to creating a wildflower meadow at home, or preparing a back garden picnic, there are a range of ways the public can get involved. In advance of Bloom At Home, Bord Bia will showcase some of the participants who take part in the festival each year, including show garden designers, food and drink producers, chefs, charities and NGOs. Advice and tips on how to get your garden or plants ready for the Bank Holiday weekend, inspiring recipes along with information on how to support the many exhibitors, organisations and charities who take part in the annual event will be shared on Bloom‘s social media channels. Stay up to date by visiting Instagram or Facebook and following the hashtag #BloomAtHome!

In partnership with RTÉ, Bord Bia is running a competition to encourage the Irish public to share images and videos of their gardens and plants on social media. Whether you have a spacious garden, an apartment balcony, or a window sill of indoor plants, everyone is invited to enter using the #BloomwithRTE on Sunday May 31st. There will be a range of prizes on offer for effort, fun and colour.
