We’re nearly finished with 2017 which, while sad to see the back of another year, is a great opportunity to start planning what gardening shows you’ll be visiting in 2018. What better way to inform your Flintshire garden design ideas! Here are a few shows you might want to put in the diary.

RHS Orchid Show & Plant Fair

Between April 6th and 7th, you’ll be able to see some incredible orchid displays and lots of lovely spring plants, and an incredible floral installation by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) in-house florist.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show

As ever, this is an absolute must-visit for anyone with a keen interest in gardening and tickets are on sale now so make sure you get yours before they’re all gone. The show this year takes place between May 22nd and 26th – the perfect way to welcome in the spring. And the website currently has all sorts of great ideas to help you green up your own outdoor spaces as well.

Malvern Autumn Show

This is taking place between September 29th and 30th next year, celebrating all things autumn with huge vegetables, lots of plants, cookery workshops, celebrities and fun for all the family.

Blenheim Palace Flower Show

Clear space in your diary for June 22nd to 24th if you fancy this particular flower show. It’s returning for its fifth year, celebrating the very best of lifestyle, home and gardening – with all you need for your house and garden in one place. Make sure you spare time to check out the palace and gardens as well before going home.
