Entries Now Open!

This is a nationwide call out for five garden designers.  Applications are welcomed from anyone aged 18 and over, who have not previously designed a garden for Bloom.  

Successful candidates will need to display a passion for garden design and demonstrate an obvious flair for creating desirable outdoor spaces.

All 5 designers will be given similar size gardens to work with, but each with a very different brief.

They must have the ability to bring their ideas to fruition and construct a high quality garden design, which meets the homeowner’s requirements. The homeowners are real people with real gardens in need of real design.

With just four weeks and a budget of €5,000 to design and build a show garden worthy of a spot at Bloom, the 5 budding designers will be taking on a serious challenge.

Each garden is marked on - originality, impact, planting, meeting the brief and the quality of the finish.
