Bord Bia, in conjunction with The Association of Landscape Contractors of Ireland (ALCI); The Garden Centre Association of Ireland (GCAI); The Irish Hardy Nursery Stock Association (IHNSA) and The Garden & Landscape Designer Association of Ireland (GLDA) has launched their Autumn Gardening campaign in Dublin.
With many people believing that autumn boasts no real gardening merit, the new campaign aims to promote the possibilities and benefits of autumn gardening to both amateur and professional gardeners in Ireland. The campaign, which is planned to launch in September, echoes the message that permeates the September issue of The Irish Garden magazine.
Editor Gerry Daly comments that "Early autumn is the second spring of the year when the graph of plants growth makes another spike as plants respond to high soil temperature levels and plenty of moisture". With autumn months on average warmer than spring months, it offers the perfect period for gardeners to get out and work in the garden.
The September issue of The Irish Garden magazine, on sale this week, outlines a range of tasks to be carried out in the garden and greenhouse this autumn. One key task for gardeners, outlined in the magazine for autumn, is the planting of spring bulbs to add colour and excitement to gardens next spring.
The Autumn Gardening campaign will incorporate events and promotions that will continue throughout the season. For more information on the campaign visit: http://bordbia.newsweaver.com/ConnectEzine/1jei1zfofa7?a=1&p=26520195&t=21005635
