Show Gardens 

Show Gardens 

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.

Beautiful Borders - Every Space Counts

Beautiful Borders - Every Space Counts

Continuing from the success of 2017, where just shy of half of the designers receiving a coveted Gold award, we are hoping for a bumper year of applications and fascinating designs. 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.
