Summertime...and gardening is in full swing

Welcome to June's Bord na Móna Growise Ezine. The weather has started to warm up after quite a cool spring.

In this edition, our Gardening Expert addresses that issue and gives advice on what to do in the garden this month. We also share top tips and some pictures from our photo competition - we were seriously impressed with the gardening snaps sent in!

We hope you continue to Grow With Us during the next few months and please check out our newly revamped Bord na Mona Horticulture website - we hope you like it. Keep sharing your experiences on our Facebook and Twitter pages, we love hearing from you!
