rhs chelsea flower show 2009

tickets are already on sale for RHS Chelsea flower show. How do I know? Well I follow them on twitter! The RHS are on twitter here and of course donegan landscaping is on twitter here.

rhs & donegan landscaping on twitter

it’s amazing to think that even an organisation like the rhs [on the go since 1804] is embracing technology and using it to its advantage.

And it’s also, maybe, something that Irish event organisers should consider? It is for sure a lot better than the days of old where email addresses meant an inbox full of daily deletions….

Bulaidh bós lads.
