TWO Cork gardeners will have their fingers crossed when the winner of this year’s Super Garden is announced in the final episode of the series on RTÉ1 on Thursday at 8pm.
Mark Hoey and Siobhan Keogh are among the five contestants in the running for the prize of having their design features in next year’s Bloom festival in Dublin.
Father of one Mark, of Midleton, created ‘Reflection’ for homeowner Shelly Gaynor, who is a wheelchair user and disability and independent living campaigner.
Siobhan, 28, an architectural graduate from Cork city, created a garden entitled ‘Retreat & Restorative’ for mum Margaret Jones and her 11-year-old daughter Katie.
They will be up against three other gardeners who designed areas at a new social housing development in County Dublin.
The five had two weeks to draft their garden design concept for their family and three weeks to build it. Now Super Garden judges, Manager of Bloom Gary Graham, Dulux Exteriors Design Ambassador Monica Alvarez, and Woodie’s Garden and DIY Expert Brian Burke, are ready to reveal the winner.
