New Leaf Compost named official compost provider for Ireland’s largest gardening and horticulture festival

Belfast company New Leaf Compost has been named as the official compost provider for Bord Bia Bloom, Ireland’s largest gardening and horticulture festival.

Now in its 18th year, Bord Bia Bloom is a unique event, attracting over 100,000 visitors to meet garden designers, flower growers, landscapers, plant enthusiasts, garden-furniture makers, food lovers, and horticulturists annually from across Ireland and beyond.

As official compost provider, New Leaf Compost will be providing 100 tonnes of 100% peat-free, organic multi-purpose compost for the event, facilitating the creation of over 20 impressive show gardens and numerous smaller Postcard Gardens for crowds to enjoy.

Bord Bia Bloom will take place in Dublin’s iconic Phoenix Park from 30th May to 3rd June 2024 inclusive, with New Leaf Compost unveiling its ‘Above and Beyond’ show garden at the event – a captivating garden designed to showcase innovative concepts and inspire visitors to push the boundaries of their gardening endeavours.

Stephen Mackle, Business Development Manager at New Leaf Compost, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership:

“We are incredibly proud to be appointed as the official compost provider for such a prestigious event. New Leaf Compost has been involved with Bord Bia Bloom for many years, so this partnership feels like a natural next step.

“The prominent use of our compost in all of the event’s gardens this year is testament to its unrivalled quality and our environmental credentials as a company with a strong focus on sustainability and working with organics across Ireland.

“Bord Bia Bloom is the highlight of our calendar year and this year’s event is set to be another huge success.”

Welcoming the collaboration, Garret Buckley, Sponsorship Manager at Bord Bia Bloom, said:

“Bord Bia Bloom is thrilled to have New Leaf Compost onboard as an official provider of the show for 2024.

“Our mission is to inspire and celebrate the best in horticulture, and that aligns synonymously with New Leaf Compost’s commitment to sustainability and excellence in gardening.

“The success of this event would not be possible without the unwavering support and contributions of companies such as New Leaf Compost. It is a pleasure to have so many partners and exhibitors join us this year to provide even more value for the thousands that will attend over the five-day period.”
