Bloom 2019 summer success with dementia-friendly garden

As suppliers to Bloom projects, we are delighted to hear about the success of  talented designers. This stunning garden was created by award-winning horticultural designer Robert Moore, a double gold medalist at Bloom last year. The concept of the 1950s themed garden was to raise awareness of dementia and Alzheimer’s. By using beautiful flowers and planting, the hope was that scents, colours and textures would evoke fond memories of childhood. One of the garden features was a seated area made from Connemara limestone, placed in its original format, to add authenticity to the project.
