We’ve had a fantastic few months attending lots of garden shows and flower festivals. Can you believe we’ve already attended several shows, including the incredible RHS Chelsea? But we’ve not finished yet. We’re planning to attend even more gardening events and we can’t wait to meet you there! Which show will be on your must visit list?
Darlac Shows 2022
We’ve attended wonderful events already this year including, the Newbury Garden Show, Harrogate Spring Flower Show, Malvern Spring Festival and the National Flower Show. And we’ve decided to add lots more to our list…
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
This is a classic stop on the Darlac 2022 flower and garden show tour. The Blenheim Flower Show needs little introduction. 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.
Chenies Manor Plant Fair
The Plant Fair at Chenies Manor attracts some 70 specialist nurseries from across the UK to display and offer their plants. Everyone is looking forward to a spectacular offering and we can’t wait to attend again. The Plant Fair takes place on the 17th July.
Edenbridge & Oxted Agricultural Show
“Celebrating the country way of life since 1837”, the Edenbridge & Oxted Agricultural show won’t disappoint. With gardening, outdoors and animals, it’ll be a show for all the family.
Showcasing and celebrating farming, rural life and the finest food and drink from across the counties and beyond, this show has it all. With competitions for everyone and a full timetable of entertainment, you’ll be sure of a good day out. We’ll be there from 28th-29th of August.
Harrogate Autumn Show
Tickets for the 2022 Harrogate Autumn Flower Show include admission to Newby Hall’s magnificent gardens and adventure park! It’s going to be a bumper event and tickets are on sale now. The show takes place from the 16th-18th September. The Harrogate Flower Shows are organised by the North of England Horticultural Society. All profits from the shows are returned to the charity and used to promote gardening and horticulture in the North of England – so it’s a win, win!
Malvern Autumn Show
The ultimate harvest festival! The Malvern Autumn Show is a family affair, with flowers, food, and fun, plus lots of shopping. Taking place from the 23rd-25th September, it’ll be great to be back at this showground and we’ll be looking forward to seeing you there.
What to Expect at a Garden or Flower Show
If you’ve never attended a garden show, you’re in for a treat! You’ll experience delightful displays, talks and competitions, alongside stunning flower sales and expert advice from gardeners and suppliers. At Darlac, we like to showcase our range of tools and talk about all things gardening! Remember, you’ll be surrounded by like-minded people, so don’t worry about asking questions, or even commenting on garden displays and flower arrangements.
One of the best things about attending a garden show is the ability to pick up ideas. You’ll leave buzzing with creativity and excitement as you see some of the most unique garden ideas and unusual plant varieties. Be sure to make a few notes or snap a few pictures so you can have a go at replicating some of these ideas at home.
We’d love to see you at one of these shows, be sure to come and say hi!
