Horticultural exhibiting opportunities
If you are interested in applying with a Garden or Beautiful Border, or would like to exhibit in the Floral Marquee or Plant Village, please get in touch with Lucy Tremlett at [email protected] or telephone the office on 0207 150 5130 if you would like further information.
APPLICATIONS FOR 2022:
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 0207 150 5130 .
Showcase Gardens offer designers a step up from Beautiful Borders. The showcase gardens are restricted to below 40m2, 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 0207 150 5130 .
Beautiful Borders are an annual visitor favourite at BBC Gardeners’ World Live as they display a variety of excellent designs, space savvy ideas, planting combinations and creative features that can be packed into a small garden. At just a few square metres, creating a Beautiful Border is a fantastic way to showcase your skills to a large audience of keen gardeners, press and experts.
The Beautiful Borders at BBC Gardeners’ World Live 2022 will be a celebration of Wild Life. The concept of Wild Life may take you in different directions – be it garden ecosystems and habitats , the beauty of untamed natural planting, a garden space to let your hair down in, or a fierce colour palette – we want to know what ‘Wild Life’ means to you.
BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine subscribers have the chance to enter a Beautiful Border for the Best BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine Subscriber Border award. This competition has been extended to 21 February.
If you are interested in getting more information about applying for a Beautiful Border, please email Lucy or call her on 0207 150 5130.
The Floral Marquee at BBC Gardeners’ World Live is an integral feature of the show. With exhibitors being the top nurseries from the UK and abroad, the marquee is the prestige of quality plants, dramatic innovative displays and engaging sales areas.
If you are interested in getting more information about exhibiting in the Floral Marquee in the future, please email Lucy or call her on 0207 150 5130.
Exhibitors have large selling areas both covered and uncovered, with an associated small display of their plants. Applications are welcomed from quality British and International nurseries.
If you are interested in getting more information about exhibiting in the Plant Village in the future, please email Lucy or call her on 0207 150 5130.
