What a Show!
We came, we saw, we conquered the tricky spots in our gardens and took home a Show load of garden inspiration…and plants too!
The Platinum Award winning Made in Birmingham Garden scooped the coveted title of Best In Show. It stole the Show with its steam train, embankment allotment and cutting garden with planting that harked back to days gone by. Stay tuned in to us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as we keep the ideas flowing over the coming months.
Save the date; as next year's BBC Gardeners’ World Live takes place 13 – 16 June 2019.
Dry shade? No problem!
The Platinum Award winning Wyevale Garden Centres Solutions Garden showed how we can turn perceived challenges to our advantage with planting in the dry shade area being one of the most popular. Get the latest solutions from the garden in our final Garden Journey blog post.
This year’s APL Avenue was packed with five incredible ideas for back gardens, with Keyscape Gardens and Living Gardens both achieving Gold Medals. People’s Choice was won by Conquest Creative Spaces for their ‘Across the Board’ garden, for its creativity whilst being easy to maintain.

As seen on TV
There are still a couple more weeks to relive the Show on iPlayer! The TV team filmed with us on the opening day with a selection of highlights including Carol Klein and Nick Bailey in the Floral Marquee, and Joe Swift, Arit Anderson, Mark Lane and Adam Frost in the Show Gardens.
