Show Gardens are the editorial jewel in the crown and secure significant exposure within the event’s marketing campaign. Show Gardens can generate business or even a subliminal promotion, particularly important for a charity. We welcome gardens both small and large that encapsulate eye-catching designs with well-built construction and innovative planting.
If you have any questions or queries about the application or Show Gardens in general, email Lucy or call her on 0203 405 4288.

Showcase Gardens offer designers a step up from Beautiful Borders. The showcase gardens are restricted to below 50m2, but not limited by any theme to allow for creativity and artistry. The Showcase Gardens are assessed with specific criteria that differ from the Show Gardens, and are a fantastic opportunity for those looking for a bigger challenge, although just not too big!
If you have any questions or queries about the application or Showcase Gardens in general, email Lucy or call her on 0203 405 4288.

Beautiful Borders are a unique element of BBC Gardeners’ World Live providing an opportunity for horticultural students and budding gardeners to experience the design, planning and build of a horticultural exhibit in a show environment, without the large financial and resource commitment of a show garden. Beautiful Borders are an enjoyable feature with visitors, allowing them to be able to be inspired for their own garden or small space.
2020 Beautiful Borders applications are now closed.
The APL Avenue Competition is run in conjunction with The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) at BBC Gardeners’ World Live. Each of the five Show Gardens are designed to an average back garden size, with each landscaping company creating a realistic client brief to work to.
For visitors the Show Gardens show what incredible results can be achieved with the support of an experienced landscaping company, as well as great ideas to try at home themselves.
"The APL Avenue Show Gardens at BBC Gardeners' World Live have a real achievable feel, and will provide great take-home ideas and lots of inspiration. I can’t wait to see them in the flesh" says Gardeners' World presenter and award-winning garden designer Adam Frost.
