Flower Show

When you’ve had your fair share of the animals, pop over to the Flower Show for something a bit different but every bit as impressive. Novice, expert, and junior gardeners exhibit the best flowers and vegetables grown in their own gardens. Perfect for inspiration if you’re looking to grow your own at home.


When it comes to successful gardening, sometimes all you need is the right advice. Local specialist plant nurseries will be on hand to give you guidance on how best to grow a range of plants. If you’re looking for something a bit different, the nurseries will also have a range of interesting and unusual plants on offer.

If you are looking for expert advice, make sure you visit the National Plant Societies including National Sweet Pea Society, British Hosta and Hemerocallis Society.
