A look back at the 2019 show

Displays and exhibits were themed around resourcefulness, sustainability and our relationship with plants. Gardening in urban environments was a key focus of the show; from houseplants to balcony gardening and growing your own fruit and veg.

Wealth of expertise

Growers from across the UK and Europe exhibited their finest spring interest plants to inject colour in our winter-weary borders and pots as well as bringing nature into our homes with flowering and foliage houseplants.

Visitors enjoyed a wide variety of rare and exotic orchid species on display with many available to buy. Specialist growers were on hand to offer all the advice needed to successfully grow orchid blooms.

Practical masterclasses

Creative sessions gave people hands-on experience including:

  • Learning how to make dried flower bouquets
  • Trying their hand at botanical life drawing
  • Taking a masterclass in terrarium gardening
  • Decorating cupcakes ‘succulent-style’
