Inspired by Malvern’s heyday as one of England’s finest spa resorts, there is no better place for gardeners of all abilities to discover summer inspiration.
This landmark four-day event will welcome all new features and exhibits and a vibrant line up of the finest in gardening, food and lifestyle.
Headline guest will once again be Alan Titchmarsh, along with fellow gardening experts Carol Klein, Monty Don, Joe Swift and Adam Frost.
The Floral Marquee welcomes 69 leading UK nurseries, with impressive displays of prized blooms and new varieties. Visitors can browse and buy from the very best floral exhibitors.
BBC Gardeners’ World presenter and designer Joe Swift brings the Plant Finder Parlour to the Floral Marquee. There will be daily talks from award-winning nurseries and a welcome for budding gardeners big and small.
Jekka McVicar has designed and built a specially commissioned permanent garden, bringing to life the role gardens continue to play in our health and wellbeing. Jekka’s feel-good garden is a living working space for mind, body and senses. The garden is both a tranquil seating space where visitors can spend time among the aromatic herb beds, as well as a place to learn and explore what living well means. Visitors are invited to join daily ‘herbal conversations’ with Jekka herself.
The highest standard of garden design is showcased in the Show Gardens. Leading designers create awe-inspiring gardens as they compete for prestigious RHS accolades including Gold medals and Best In Show.
The Spa Gardens are a brand new category introduced for the very first time to the show, offering a unique platform for emerging gardening talent. The Spa Gardens category also features one garden from an international designer supported by Moscow Flower Show, part of a newly introduced exchange programme.
The School Gardens are designed and built entirely by young people. This year sees 13 schools and educational groups from across the three counties taking part, led by BBC Blue Peter Gardener, Chris Collins.
