Enjoy a blooming good day out as The Garden Show comes to Broadlands in Romsey
The Garden Show is set to bloom this autumn and organisers are delighted to launch the show at Broadlands, Romsey for the first time from October 1-3.
We’re sure you’re keen to get out and about as the country has opened up again. You can be confident that the show will continue to maintain a level of safety but now is the chance to be social and gather together again, albeit maybe a little apart.
Although there will be fewer plants than in the spring and summer shows, it’s the perfect time for planting trees, shrubs, bulbs and winter-flowering plants, as well as finding indoor plants to enhance the winter home.
It’s a great opportunity to source new talent, designers and artisans and browse more than 160 stands showcasing the latest specialist plants, garden and home accessories, art, design, sculpture, fashion, toys and a multitude of lovely goodies with tempting foods and wines in the Country Food marquee.
There’s something at the show that will appeal to everyone! It’s also good chance to do some early Christmas shopping and support the smaller businesses.
There's expert garden advice daily from the environmentalists Jules & Lance, plus a Walk & Talk with Jules on the Friday titled The Hidden Life of Trees. Jules will also give a talk on Saturday entitled Lazy Gardeners Watering Systems.
On the Friday Hannah Howell from Tawny Flower Shed will be holding an autumn flower-arranging demonstration. On the Sunday Dr Ian Bedford, an entomologist, will be running the Pest Clinic, helping ensure bugs are managed in an environmentally-friendly way whilst still encouraging wildlife into our gardens.
Also on the Sunday, Ben Cross from Crosslands Alstroemeria Nursery, will give a talk about the drastic decline of the British cut flower industry and why ‘British Flowers Rock!’
It’s not all about gardening: there are plenty of activities on site to keep all the family occupied including the ‘Giant Tombola’, a chance to win amazing prizes donated by The Garden Show exhibitors in support of the show’s chosen charity Jane Scarth House https://www.janescarthhouse.co.uk .
There are also fun times to be had with the children’s entertainer Crazee Hazee, learning circus skills and watching his hilarious Punch and Judy shows!
There will be ongoing artisan demonstrations, along with musical entertainment from The Jazz Trio, who will be wandering around delighting all with their evocative music of times past ... all this and so much more to enjoy, including Huxley Birds of Prey who will thrill spectators as they soar to the skies.
A great day out for the whole family. Life is good in your autumn garden!
