■ Ire­land’s old­est mail or­der gar­den re­tailer, Mr Mid­dle­ton, won two gold medals this year at Bloom with a spring bulb dis­play.. He fea­tured the largest dis­play of al­lium bulbs at Bloom this year and brought his gold medal to­tal to 11 so far. Also on show were Thomas Quer­ney’s tea plants which were launched in April of this year and have been a huge suc­cess with Ir­ish gar­den­ers. Na­tive to south­east China, Camel­lia Sinen­sis, grows very well in gar­dens all over Ire­land as the cool, damp con­di­tions on the moun­tains in China are very sim­i­lar to the cool, damp con­di­tions we ex­pe­ri­ence here, he says. The Mr Mid­dle­ton site sells over 1,000 va­ri­eties of flower bulbs in its au­tumn range, in­clud­ing unique va­ri­eties of tulips and nar­cissi as well as na­tive blue­bells and the com­pany has been in busi­ness for over 40 years.­mid­dle­
