IRELAND’S four main horticulture industry associations - 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), in conjunction with Bord Bia, are encouraging garden centres, landscape and garden designers in Tipperary to take part in an autumn gardening campaign this September.

The campaign aims to encourage and educate the public on the advantages of gardening during the autumn. Planning is already underway for a number of events and activities to take place across the country.

There is a widespread belief among the public that the gardening year is drawing to a close. After a challenging season, the garden industry in Ireland is working together to develop and launch a campaign to remind the public that there is still time to enjoy the garden and that autumn is the real beginning of the new gardening year.

The four main industry bodies, in partnership with Bord Bia, are encouraging their Tipperary members to organise events, workshops and promotions to help convey the message that autumn is nature’s natural beginning of the gardening year.

The autumn gardening campaign will launch in early September with events and promotions set to continue throughout the autumn season. To get involved why not organise a gardening event for your business! Contact your industry association for further details or alternatively register your event with Bord Bia by emailing gardentime@bordbia.ie or visit www.bordbia.ie/gardentime
