    Bloom 2011 – the most successful yet!

    Bloom 2011 has been the most successful yet for our brands Bosch, STIHL and VIKING. Bosch sponsored the Chef’s Summer Kitchen again this year where Donal Skehan and Nevin Maguire cooked some of their favourite summer recipes.  Bosch also sponsored the Plant Crèche where visitors could leave their plants while they enjoyed all the other attractions at Bloom.

    This year VIKING sponsored the Kells Bay Garden which was designed by Frazer McDonagh and Billy Alexander. We are delighted that the garden won a Sliver-Gilt Medal.

    In the exhibition tent STIHL & VIKING had an impressive display showcasing the range. They even had a real VIKING! The Bosch Lawn and Garden stand displayed the new Ergo-Flex lawnmowers and the innovative Lithium Ion power 36V Bosch chainsaw.

    We are looking forward to Bloom 2012 which we are sure will be even better!
