Testimonials

We're so proud of the comments that we receive from our visitors. Here is just a small selection of what our fantastic Show visitors had to say:

2017

"Attended a couple of garden shows already this year and this was the one that I feel I'm most likely to return to in future years. Well laid out, easy to travel through site. Well done Gardeners’ World Live."

"A great, informative day out and if you love gardening and flowers it's not to be missed. Seeing the presenters was a real treat, especially Monty Don. I've never seen so many beautiful plants and flowers, so beautifully presented. Living so far away from London, it was akin to going to Chelsea for me. I loved every minute."

"A wonderful day out for all the family. Superb organisation that makes the journey worth it no matter how far one has travelled to reach the NEC. My favourite garden show without exception."

"A lovely day out for all the family and/or keen gardeners. Lovely to see the Show Gardens, Borders and stands outside plus a great Floral Marquee and you can buy tools and plants."

"A cracking good weekend away fantastic Show Gardens, excellent advise from experts in their field and good shopping and of course you get to go to the Good Food show as well!"

"A fantastic day with such a wide variety of gardening ideas. A real eye opener to the variety of flowers and plants it has given me more confidence to widen what I plant and where to plant in my own garden which is my main aim to be more creative and confident when gardening."

"Excellent value for money; great buzz around all the areas; lots of smashing plants, some of which came home with us. Definitely a day out to recommend!"

"A marvellous medley of colour and aromas that just HAS to be on your bucket list!"
"Innovative, exciting, enthralling, sociable and a must see."
"The ultimate place to see anything and everything gardening related."

2016

Fran:

"Absolutely fantastic day out all round - I purchased the tickets for my husband and myself as a Father's Day treat as we both enjoy our garden and like good food - so it was a win win situation all round!  Quite exhausted when we got back home but in a nice way!  We had both had such a lovely day and would definitely like to return and would certainly encourage friends and family to go if they haven't done so already! A big thank you to all involved with the shows and to the NEC for a perfect day out! :)"

Amy:

"A wonderful day out, excellent variety of plants. Beautiful show gardens to look at. Traders were friendly and helpful when asking about plants.

Will be back next year."

Anne:

"It was an absolute joy to see everything and to speak to exhibitors who were unstinting in their advice.. We enjoyed chatting to other visitors to the show and hearing their stories and comments. It is a definite date for the coming years."

Pamela:

"I think Gardeners World Live is ideal for the average home gardener or allotment owner.

Show gardens are achievable and the tips and advice are invaluable"

Gemma:

"A really great and interesting experience - you don't have to be a keen or addicted gardener to have such a fun day out - everyone will find something enjoyable and memorable, even if it's raining. Easy to access well priced and a superb location."

Leane:

"Really great experience, loved being able to hear Monty Don discuss his own garden and answer questions from the audience. Really enjoyed the floral marquee and enjoyed seeing such a large display of British and international plants. Particularly found the Monty Don talk about raised beds useful, as this is something we're planning for our own garden. Looking forward to next year and was lovely to see the Good Food Show too - the two shows fitted perfectly together and offered great value for ticket prices."
