This years theme is right up our street it's vintage and not only is the show aimed at the green fingered amongst you, it's also bound to be a hit with foodies. In the food village celebrity chefs including the lovely Stacie Stewart of the amazing Beehive Bakery (can you tell we are huge fans?) and TV chef Simon Rimmer will be demonstrating their excellent cookery skills. 

You can also visit the spectacular show gardens and be inspired to transform your own plot big or small. Take in the blooms at the Grand Floral Marquee from chrysanthemums and cacti, or meet some well known faces from the gardening world such as Tony Kirkham, Matthew Wilson and Professor David Bellamy OBE.

With something for all the family and one million blooms it promises to be florally fantastic event!
