The 2023 Garden Village was full of colour and interest in June. Throughout the village we hosted a range of horticultural exhibitors, where you will find plants and garden accessories, along with the School Garden Competitions showcasing the work of local primary and secondary school children. These were alongside our Show Gardens, showcasing garden designers and landscapers. These gardens always provide visitors with inspirational ideas to take back to their own garden. Our Floral Marquee was full of floral exhibits and arrangements.
In the meantime bookings are now open for anyone interested in staging a Show Garden or to take part in the School Garden competitions, please find more information below.
At past shows our Show Gardens have been a favourite of visitors to the Show, the designs, creativity and imagination get better each year.
Details below for those wishing to participate:
Show Garden: A 6m x 6m plot will be prepared prior to your arrival with kickboards and filled with topsoil.
Costs to exhibit: There is no charge to enter!
Building your Garden: Design work and planning should take place in advance. The exhibit can then be built during the week prior to the show, between the hours of 9am-5pm. Your exhibit must be completed ready for the Show by 7pm on Tuesday 25 June.
Time commitment on Show days: We would expect a member(s) of the Show Garden Team to be available to talk to the general public throughout both Show Days.
