Well, it’s been a bumpy few years for garden and flower shows, but this year the 2022 line-up is looking fantastic! Here at Darlac, we love nothing more than to meet and greet our customers and friends at the best of British garden and flower shows and talk about all things gardening, from tools to tips and gardening advice. Which shows are you planning to attend in 2022? We can’t wait to see you there.
The Best in Show 2022
Before we hit the peak of summer 2022 in July, the Darlac team will attend an incredible nine shows! We’ve picked some of our favourites, including famous shows, national shows and RHS shows to attend. We’ll be showcasing our cutting-edge tools and sharing our best gardening advice. Pop along to one of these nine shows and talk to us about all things Darlac.
Newbury Garden Show
Kicking off our show tour in style is the Newbury Garden Show! If you’re looking for a fantastic way to spend the Easter bank holiday, this is it. This event takes place from Sunday 17th – Monday 18th April. A celebration of the great outdoors, the Newbury show is full of inspiration for gardeners and lifestyle lovers. You’ll find everything you need for your home and garden.
The Harrogate Spring Flower Show
Taking place from Thursday 21st – Sunday 24th April, Harrogate Spring Flower Show is a prestigious flower event that takes place on the Great Yorkshire Show Ground. It’s often cited as one of the first big events in the gardening calendar, and we’re sure this year won’t disappoint. The show is organised by the North of England Horticultural Society and all profits from the show are used by the charity to promote gardening and horticulture in the North of England. Is this show on your calendar?
RHS Malvern Spring Festival
We will be making our way around the whole country as we hit the show circuit, and the next stop on our tour will be RHS Malvern Spring Festival. The festival takes place from Thursday 5th – Sunday 8th May at the stunning Three Counties Show Ground. Set against the Malvern Hills, you’ll not only be able to join in with crafts, family fun, food, and flowers, but you’ll also have wonderful views. RHS members get a discount on tickets too!
RHS Chelsea Flower Show
RHS Chelsea is described as: ‘The world’s greatest flower show… with stunning garden designs, gorgeous floral displays and endless shopping’. What’s not to love about that description? Possibly one of the most well-known flower shows, RHS Chelsea Flower Show offers stunning displays and show gardens that really are the pinnacle of horticultural design and skill. You’re sure to find inspiration for your garden and pick up a few tips from the experts too. The show runs from Tuesday 24th – Saturday 28th May and tickets are sure to be snapped up quickly. Don’t miss out if you’re planning your visit!
The National Flower Show
From Friday 20th – Sunday 22nd May, you’ll find us at The National Flower Show. The show takes place at Hylands House and Estate and promises to be ‘bigger and better than ever with incredible flower displays inside Hylands House and hundreds of exhibitors selling everything you’ll need to create the perfect outdoor space and heavenly home interiors’. This is the show for you if you like to celebrate homes and interiors along with all things gardening and flowers. Hopefully we’ll see you there!
If you live in the South of England, the Suffolk Show is the show for you. Running from Tuesday 31st May – Wednesday 1st June, it’s one of the UK’s oldest country shows and offers a traditional agricultural experience. The show is organised by the Suffolk Agricultural Association and is a proud achievement that showcases their 191-year history. You’ll find food, farming and agricultural heritage events. One not to miss!
South of England Show
Taking over the iconic South of England Showground in Ardingly, West Sussex, from Friday 10th – Sunday 12th June, the South of England Show is one of Sussex’s most popular countryside events. The show hopes to not only celebrate the agricultural industry, but a huge aim of the charity run event is to educate the public about farming life.
Blenheim Flower Show
The final stop on the first part of the Darlac 2022 flower and garden show tour is the classic Blenheim Flower Show. The 2022 show dates are Friday 24th – Sunday 26th June. It’s a fantastic opportunity to see Blenheim in its full glory, with talks, shopping, show gardens and, of course, The Grand Floral Pavilion. This three-day show is a great place to celebrate all the things we love about gardening.
Attending a garden and flower show is a great opportunity to spot new trends and ideas. It can fuel your imagination as you explore the wonders on display. But it’s also the perfect place to meet people who are interested in similar hobbies and activities. Take some time this year to socialise and share the joy of the garden with like-minded people at a country, flower, or garden show.
We’d love to see you at one of these shows but if you can’t make it, don’t worry, we’ll be sharing more dates and shows from July onwards!
