Last year’s Flower Festival was such a success. Glorious weather helped with a great turnout of people on the day, although the dry spell also proved slightly challenging for the garden builders.

You can expect to find a huge array of retailers at this event selling everything gardening from plants to stunning garden sculptures and beautiful furniture, fire pits and bbqs.
