It may have been a wet summer so far, but there is much for budding gardeners to look forward to at the National Gardening Show.
Cheddar Garden Centres are delighted to confirm our involvement as the main sponsor of the show which runs from August 31 – September 2.
The National Gardening Show makes a cracking day out for gardening enthusiasts, whether they are amateurs or experienced green fingers. There is a varied audience here for sure – Chelsea Flower Show winners regularly attend, as well as budding entrepreneurs who are eager to make a name for themselves in the world of gardening.
All can learn from expert advice about how to grow your own vegetables and plants, and watch demonstrations on getting the most from your garden in autumn.
One memorable spectacle is the National Dahlia Society Show which is the oldest of its kind and celebrates the cultivation of these unique flowers. And if you are interested in rearing your own hens or hatching your own eggs, the new poultry show will take your fancy.
This year’s highlights include a vertical show garden and a garden built by a school. And there is a chance to enter the New Instant Garden Challenge where plants are provided by Cheddar Garden Centre. Garden clubs will be pitting their wits against each other every day against the clock to design a garden in just two hours.
In fact there is no end to the fun things to see at the National Gardening Show including the Edible Bus Stop team which are giving you the chance to makeover your local Bus Stop.
And the Giant Vegetable competition is always memorable especially as last year there was a 8.3lb potato which is now in the Guinness Book of World Records.
And there is something for food enthusiasts too with the ‘best of the west’ Food Halls which offer local specialities such as pasties, cheese, chutneys, fudges and cider.
