THE kitchen from the set of the hit comedy series 'Mrs Brown's Boys' will feature in a quirky horticultural display at next month's popular gardening festival Bloom.

Horticulturalists-to-the-stars, Orla and Paul Woods from Kilmurry Nursery in Gorey, Co Wexford, are behind the 'Mrs Brown's Boys'-themed display that will recreate the fictional Dublin matriarch's cosy kitchen.

Her imaginary inner-city Dublin garden will include plenty of detail such as the ever-present batch of Brennan's sliced pan on the side board.

The husband-and-wife team, who design landscaped sets for movies and television, including 'The Tudors', have been poring over the comedy series to recreate the kitchen in exact detail.

"D'Garden" will include lots of homegrown vegetables that Mrs Brown, played by comedian Brendan O'Carroll, might grow to flog at her stall on Dublin's Moore Street.

Talks are also under way concerning a possible appearance of the cast at the festival to coincide with the upcoming release of 'Mrs Brown's Boys, D' Movie'.

The five-day festival at Dublin's Phoenix Park running over the June Bank Holiday weekend will also feature 30 show gardens from Ireland's top garden designers.
