What a Show this is going to be!
Our annual visitor favourite, the Floral Marquee, is being taken to a new level this year as BBC2’s Gardeners’ World turns 50. So much so, that this entire blog post is dedicated to – and believe me, this is just the tip of the iceberg – the experience that is the BBC Gardeners’ World Live Floral Marquee!
Join us for a magical ride.

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!
