The gardens of delight

Who says Bloom is all about pottering around gardens while sampling great Irish food? This year Peter Pan, stiletto heels, WB Yeats and home brew will be on show at the five-day fest in the Phoenix Park. Now in its ninth year, Bloom is sponsored by Bord Bia.

Last year, 106,000 people attended the show. Bord Bia's Gary Graham says 25 show gardens feature this year, along with a 'slum garden' showing the work of Third World aid agency Goal.
