Tirlán CountryLife champions Postcard Gardens at Bloom

Tirlán CountryLife Nurtures Community Talent with
Postcard Gardens at Bloom Garden Festival 2024


Tirlán CountryLife is proud to champion the 13 Postcard Gardens featured at the popular June bank holiday weekend event. From backyards to garden festivals, these small, but perfectly-formed Postcard Gardens are 2m x 3m plots, designed and created by amateur gardeners.

The Postcard Gardens have become one of the most popular visitor attractions at Bloom where 13 local gardening groups and enthusiasts design and create them. This year they are on display next to the main entrance to the festival.


Enriching communities 

The Postcard Gardens are designed and created by amateur gardeners from community groups, schools, charitable organisations and garden clubs. The  petite spaces give these groups the chance to tell their stories and showcase creative talents through innovative and vibrant garden design. This year’s entries include a garden designed by the Ballyfoyle Community Group, which is committed to caring for the environment. It will be replanted in Ballyfoyle’s Memorial Garden after the festival. The garden is inspired by the surrounding landscape and local history of Ballyfoyle. Each Postcard Garden enables the gardening or community group to promote the benefits of green spaces in their local community and foster connections during the festival. 

Tirlán CountryLife sponsorship of the Postcard Gardens at Bloom featuring Ballyfoyle Community Group from Co. Kilkenny and their garden.


Collaborative effort 

Senan Foley, Head of Retail at Tirlán said, “The sponsorship of the Postcard Gardens at Bloom is a perfect example of Tirlan CountryLife’s commitment to supporting and celebrating individual communities. Our network of 15 garden centres all operate in the heart of rural communities where our team of horticultural experts, quality plants and value help spread the magic and benefits of gardening to groups of all ages throughout Ireland.

Tirlán CountryLife has an exciting programme of activities over the festival including: 

  • The opportunity to win a community garden worth €2000 
  • Panel discussion on community gardens on the Main Stage 
  • Kids activity to help plant a flower wall which will be donated back to Laura Lynn Ireland’s Children’s Hospice
  • Goodies and giveaways in their Tirlán CountryLife tent
