Talk to the growers themselves, or speak with The Plant Experts at their Advice Desk in the Floral Marquee, to discover and buy the plants that are perfect for you and your home.
Rocket is a great windowsill veg all year round. One of the most effective ways to grow rocket indoors is as a microgreen, as the young leaves are speedy to sprout, space-savvy and highly nutritious.
We've paired expert tips for growing rocket as a microgreen with a recipe by Dr Rupy Aujla (The Doctor's Kitchen) which he demonstrated live on stage at the BBC Good Food Show Summer 2018. (Remember, all tickets to BBC Gardeners' World Live include entry to this tasty show!)

BBC Gardeners’ World is back on BBC Two, which means the gardening season is well and truly underway! It’s wonderful to have Monty Don, Carol Klein, Adam Frost and the team on our screens and it's even more wonderful to know that they’ll be sharing gardening advice live at the show in June.

Mother's Day is a chance to celebrate Motherhood, and the tradition to bestow them with flowers and plants on their special day never diminishes.
With so much choice, as ever, we've decided to give you a helping hand to find some fantastic gifts, all from exhibitors who you'll find at the Show in June.
This time last year we were on the brink of the Beast From the East, but 2019 couldn’t feel more different. Though we don’t want to speak too soon, it won’t be long before we’re enjoying homegrown crops like rhubarb and starting spring veg sowings.
At BBC Gardeners’ World Live, spring is a time for announcements. We’re thrilled to reveal that multi award-winning Professor David Stevens is designer of the two Young Landscaper of the Year Competition Show Gardens and the Young Landscaper teams have been announced.
