With Bloom in full swing Paraic gave a synopsis of some of the show gardens at this year's event taking place over the bank holiday weekend. Plants featured in this edition included Euryops with advice on how to grow and take cuttings. Paraic made some recommendations to Tidy Towns groups interested in planting herbaceous perennials and looked ahead to June drop on apple and fuit trees as heavy early fruiting is indicating a good harvest. Other topics included controlling caterpillars and greenfly, planting to provide wind & sea barriers, removing suckers from cherry trees and planting hanging baskets. Listeners questions featured problems with onion sets, yellowing dahlias, dehydrated rhubarb and an overabundance of mint.
