Bloom 2011 – Other things I thought were cool!

by Ciaran Burke

With so much happening, so many great garden, superb plants and enticing plant stalls, I don’t have time to write about them all straight away. During the week I will get around to uploading all my photos to my photoshelter site. For now though here are gardens, plants and things that I really liked at Bloom, but have not featured. (In no particular order).
