My Bloom garden this year was for Dogs Trust. The premise of the concept was to showcase a range of ideas which can potentially be incorporated into a garden which is to be shared with a dog. There is a widely held perception that if you have a garden you cannot have a dog and if you already have a dog then you cannot create a pleasing garden. Our Bloom 2017 Show Garden attempted to counter these perceptions. We showcased a range of ideas such as sniffer trails, sand digging area, agility play frame, puzzle pole, tunnel and mound, sacrificial toilet area, outdoor shower and grooming station, covered canopy. I was awarded a Silver Medal for the garden.
