Bloom is an annual gardening festival that is held each June bank holiday. Brought to you by Bord Bia and held in the Phoenix Park, it is a glorious spectacle, showcasing and celebrating the best of Ireland's flora and food.
This year, given the current circumstances, instead of welcoming visitors to gather in the park, Bord Bia and RTÉ will be inviting everyone - from absolute beginners to the green-fingered - to get involved from the comfort of their homes on Sunday, May 31st.
Get ready to #BloomwithRTE on Sunday May 31 by sharing your photos, videos, tips and messages with the nation. We want to see traditional gardens of all sizes, balcony/patio gardens, house plants and community spirit. There'll be great prizes up for grabs too from @BordBiaBloom. pic.twitter.com/hIf3NRgyU9— RTÉ (@rte) May 21, 2020
