Monty Don

2022 marks 100 years of the BBC and, to celebrate, a selection of displays in the Floral Marquee will be inspired by popular BBC programmes, from The Archers to Only Fools and Horses. The Floral Marquee will also pay homage to the show’s roots in Birmingham with a Pebble Mill inspired display, which was personally designed by Peter Seabrook who passed away earlier this year, and Peaky Blinders-inspired feature designed by Alexandra Froggatt.

This year’s show will also shine a spotlight on sustainability, offering tips and inspiration which aim to make sustainable gardening accessible to all.

Plus, drop in to the My Gardeners’ World Stage, Let’s Grow Your Own stage and BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine Stage for talks and sessions, offering expertise and top tips, with exhibitors from the show and special guests including Frances Tophill and Adam Frost, among others. Additionally, book a seat in the BBC Gardeners’ World Live Theatre to see top experts in entertaining and informative talks.
