The Irish Garden teamed up with Bord Bia for our summer long Gromór Competition on the Ray D’Arcy Show
🌸🥕🌿🌱 THE RESULTS ARE IN! 🌱🌿🥕🌸
We teamed up with Bord Bia for our summer long Gromór Competition on the Ray D’Arcy Show. As well as getting advice and tips on http://www.gromor.ie/, our gardening guru Gerry Daly joined Ray in studio every Tuesday afternoon for several weeks, to help get your gardens growing. There was €5000 worth of prizes to give away on the 25th of August and we asked you to send in pictures, or a video of how your outdoor space or garden has improved and grown during the Lockdown to Garden@RTE.ie.
Thank you for all your wonderful submissions and congratulations to our winners – Lets Keep Gardening!
Here are the five different categories that entries were judged (showing the winning gardens):-
1.) BEST USE OF SPACE
This could be anything from a windowsill or a balcony to a flower box at the end of your cul de sac. Those of you out there who live in a more urban setting may have decided to make the most of your little patch and we would love to see how you’ve added new life to the space.
2.) MOST COLOURFUL
It’s never too late to add a burst of colour to the garden! Do you have the most vibrant flower display in the country? Even painted furniture could brighten up the dullest of spots. This is a real chance to get as creative and colourful as you can!
3.) LOCKDOWN GARDEN
Have you changed the way you use your outdoor space since we were all asked to stay at home? Perhaps you finally got to do that project you have always been meaning to do. Maybe the kids transformed the back into an obstacle course, or you created a little haven that you can call your own.
4.) VEGGIE GARDEN
There is nothing like the taste of fresh veggies plucked straight from your own soil, and now is the perfect time to start digging and planting. www.Gromor.ie has guides and tips for all you first time veggie growers out there. This is also a perfect project for Little Growers to get involved with.
5.) GARDEN PORTRAIT
Anything goes in this category! Did you manage to capture the perfect cartwheel being performed on the grass? Maybe a family of foxes paid a visit when you had the camera at the ready, or you snapped a picture of a beloved family member paying you an outdoor visit.
