Springmount Gold

Just got back from Bloom in The Park and I am delighted to say that our exhibit at the show for Springmount Garden Centre got another Gold. The pressure is on for next year now!

Thanks for all the support and kind wishes (and congratulations to all the other medal winners), especially Paul and Orla from Kilmurry. A big worry was that the electrics were not on when we set up so we didn’t know if the pump and lights would work and Paul gave a helping hand when the fountain was squirting water the wrong way!

Best-selling plants today were Lamium ‘Pink Chablis’, Dianthus ‘Memories’ and Scabious ‘Butterfly Blue’. And the glazed ball in the pond, that I had had in my pond for ten years and brought over with me, could have been sold a dozen times – shame I can’t remember where I got it!
