18-19 July 2020

Celebrity gardeners, stunning show gardens and borders, specialist plant growers, expert talks and demos set in the beautiful Capability Brown designed landscape are all in store for the Belvoir Castle Flower & Garden Show 2020. 

This year, children will also go free and the ticket price includes admission to the Castle Gardens.

Among the gardening celebrities lined up is BBC gardening presenter and designer Toby Buckland. In 2008 Toby won RHS Gold and Best in show for his Ethical Garden at BBC Gardeners’ World LIve. In 2009 he won the Environmental Award from the Garden Media Guild for a Gardeners’ World Special on peat in gardening.

The renowned floral designer Jonathan Moseley will be back doing his popular and entertaining demonstrations on both days. Since early childhood, a fascination with flowers and nature have inspired Jonathan to become one of the UK’s leading designers within the floral art world and he is very much in demand at all the leading flower shows.

 

A borders competition to help budding new garden designers and experts to show what they can achieve with plants is once again being sponsored by The London College of Garden Design and is a great way to discover new and upcoming designers.

Show organiser Andy Tudbury said “Now in our third year, we have a great show planned with all the most popular elements retained and some exciting new additions to the programme. It’s two days packed with inspiration and advice all in a stunning setting. It’s also better value than ever with early bird tickets giving a £5 saving on gate prices and kids going free.”

 

A popular feature is sure to be the Question Time slot where visitors can put their burning gardening questions to the expert panel.

Away from the talks, visitors can explore a full line up of exhibitors showing everything from garden furniture, sculpture artists, tools and crafts, as well as expert horticulturalists on hand to answer gardening questions.

Ticket prices on the gate are priced at £15 per adult, with accompanied children under 16 free. Ticket includes on site parking, admission to the event and Belvoir Castle garden.

 

The Festival organised by Halcyon Days Garden Events will be supporting the Gardeners Royal Benevolent Society, Perennial.
