HortiTrends Weekly News - Major Investments in Horticulture Education - Winner of YHOY Ireland Heats - March 26th

The words 'Going to Print' bring both dread and relief in equal amounts, as unlike the web where you can correct mistakes as they appear, print is so final. Its got to be right and you only get one chance, so for us it's been a busy week as we send the 2nd edition of the our new publication to the printers. It will be winging its way across the country over the weekend. Its a packed edition once again. Content heavy, for those rare moments when you have time to have an in-depth read. So to be sure, that you get a copy again, please subscribe and support 'Your Horticulture Journal. The HC team believe's that Ireland deserves and needs a Dedicated Trade Print Journal of its own. Your subscriptions are the proof in the pudding that the horticulture sector in Ireland also wants, what we think is deserves. Only Time will tell. Subscribe at www.Horticulture.ie

Buzzers ready please. We are writing this weeks newsletter direct from the 'Young Horticulturist of the Year' Ireland Finals. They took place today in the Botanic Gardens, Dublin. The winner was Stephen Walsh from the Amenity College at the Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin who will now represent Ireland at the UK finals later this year. While there I was told that last week the Teagasc Amenity College at the Botanic Gardens had a huge turnout for their open day with a lot of interest in the soon to be opened new teaching facilities. After the quiz we got a sneak preview of the results of the €2.5 million investment in new education facilities at the college. College principal John Mulhearn and Head of Education at Teagasc Tony Pettit are excited about the doubling of potential places for new students from the current 160 places to 320.

Kildaltons Open Day takes place on April the 4th.

Tomorrow its off to the ITB Horticulture Open Day and a chance to see their newly completed horticulture facilities which was a €1million plus investment and a signal that they are in horticulture education for the long haul.

On Friday the 'Bord Bia Annual Amenity Horticulture Awards' take place at their head quarters in Dublin. The winners will be revealed in a 'Special Feature' in the April/May edition of the HC Journal which will definatley be on your desk by next Mon/Tues if. Another good reason to get your copy now.
