First of all, please
use PHP tags when you display PHP code in your forum post....

Are you getting any error messages? Usually they help to pinpoint a problem....

$query = "SELECT Bloom_Name FROM ihs WHERE Bloom_Name='" . $Bloom_Name . "'";
$result = mysql_query($query);
if (mysql_num_rows($result) >= 1)
die("Cultivar Name Already Used, Please use another Name");
$query = "INSERT INTO ihs (Bloom_Name,Pod_Parent,Pollen_Parent) VALUES ('" . $Bloom_Name . "','value2','value3')";
$result = mysql_query($query);
if (mysql_affected_rows() < 1)
die("The table row was not added");

I recommned this site for learning PHP: http://us2.php.net/manual/en/index.php

You probably want to put single-quotes around $Bloom_name
