The Gardeners' World 50th anniversary celebrations are hotting up. As part of the celebrations, we're looking for the plant which has had the biggest impact on gardens over the past 50 years - with the winner being named as the Golden Jubilee Plant!

Question: Which gardening show includes entry to a complete stand-alone food show?
Answer: BBC Gardeners' World Live!
With every ticket to BBC Gardeners' World Live including entry to the fantastic BBC Good Food Show we think it's high time that we told you a bit more about what you can expect as you experience a day out with us in Birmingham this summer!
One of the best bits about BBC Gardeners' World Live is the inspiration to be found in Show Gardens. A wide variety of styles, colour schemes and techniques mean you're sure to find ideas you love and can't wait to recreate at home! From the APL Avenue Gardens designed for average sized gardens but with ideas that go above and beyond, to the Tesco 'Every Little Helps' Garden showing how little changes can make big differences.
Here at BBC Gardeners' World Live, achievable inspiration is a mantra. The Show Gardens that we lovingly bring to life each year are the projects of very real, and very good, garden designers who all have exceptional ideas of how you can make the most of your space.

10-Feb-2017Whilst the world is an increasingly changeable place, February is a month to glory in the reliability of nature! I am relishing the longer days, the warmer air and the plants coming out of hiding - bringing with it the optimism of spring.

06-Jan-2017Happy New Year! I look back at 2016 with great fondness. I have so many special memories of BBC Gardeners’ World Live including seeing Alan Titchmarsh and Mary Berry live on stage together, stepping onto a totally floating barge in our Canal Garden, watching as florist royalty Simon Lycett presented the brand new Eve Rose, snapping my first selfie with Monty Don and seeing incredible Show Gardens come to life to inspire thousands of gardeners.

06-Dec-2016Here, in the UK, our gardens are dormant over the winter, but gardener’s certainly are not dormant! There doesn’t seem to be a busier time of year as we add festive sparkle to our homes, create wreaths and displays from the seasonal foliage, top up bird feeders, plant bulbs and pack our diaries with social engagements.
Autumn is the best time to take stock of your garden, decide what did work, what didn’t, and what you want to achieve for next year. Visiting BBC Gardeners' World Live is one of the best ways to get ideas and inspiration, but if you can't wait until June try thumbing your way through a fabulous book...
10-Nov-2016So we’re well into November, the temperatures are dropping and it’s not just us that are feeling the cold! Now’s the time to be helping out all the creatures that call your garden ‘home’.
