The first Limerick Flower and Garden show is to be held this Sunday at the Milk Market between 11-4pm.

The Flower and Garden show is hoping to become an annual exhibition of all things related to flowers and the great outdoors.

The show is the first of what the organisers hope will become Limerick’s answer to Dublin’s Bloom, Irelands largest garden festival.

Entry is free and all proceeds go to Milford Hospice and the event coincides with Sunflowers Day, a charity occasion raising money for Milford Hospice, Castletroy by selling sunflowers for €2.

The show will have over 200 stalls which range from horticulturists to wormeries along with many of the regular Saturday morning market crew.

Local horticulturist Ger Kiely said: “It going to be a fine day and who know where it could lead!” The show will also include talks about landscaping, filling baskets and spot prizes.
