BBC Gardeners' World Live 2017 - River Street Events (15th - 17th June 2017)

One of the main events we look forward to attending every year is the BBC Gardeners’ World Live & BBC Good Food Show Summer which is held twice a year during Summer and Winter time at The NEC in Birmingham. Hence with great excitement (drumroll) we are proud to announce that we have teamed up with the organisers of this event to give our avid readers 5 pairs of tickets worth £240 to the show happening from 14 to 17 June 2018 this year. Do read on to find out the highlights for this year as well as how you can win yourself a pair of ticket to this amazing show!

There will be lots happening at this year’s BBC Gardeners’ World Live, some of the highlights include Show Gardens, expert advice, Floral Marquee, M&S Stand and Sparks Lounge, entertainment and to top this, your ticket will also give you access to the BBC Good Food Show Summer which is another excellent event happening at the same time!

This year as the resurgence in house plants takes the UK by storm, BBC Gardeners’ World Live have introduced a new stage dedicated to the art of indoor gardening thanks to Blooming Interiors who will be bringing indoor gardening gurus to the fore including Matt Biggs, author of Practical Guide to Growing Healthy Houseplants and Jane Perrone, presenter of podcast On The Ledge. Michael Perry (Mr Plant Geek) completes the line-up with an exclusive Houseplant Edition of his Weird and Wacky Plant Show. Complementing the houseplant hotshots, British Florist Association experts present daily demos on how to create the most stunning indoor displays with your garden flowers. You can even pay a visit to renowned floral designer Jonathan Moseley and his team on the British Flower Bus for more floristry tips, including wedding florals, situated next to the Blooming Interiors stage.

Visitors will also get the chance to browse over 100 places selling quality plants, many suitable for indoor gardening, in the Floral Marquee and Plant Village. There will be lots to choose from Streptocarpus, orchids and air plants to cacti, carnivorous plants and the stunningly colourful Coleus!
