Gardeners' World Live at the NEC is just over a week away and Nathan James Dodd has found that preparations for the GardenSite sponsored garden are well under way.
Created by Andy Tudbury, founder of the award winning Halcyon Days garden design company, the garden is called 'A Gentleman's Retreat'.
There's still some work to be done but we're sure that this will be an innovative design that will result in a positive reaction from the public.
One notable feature is a Carmen Pavilion from Rowlinson Timber Products. An ideal space for both relaxation and entertaining friends. Sturdily built, the louvre panels are a particularly attractive element.
What To Expect
One recent piece of news is that Paul Harris, a finalist from the Great Chelsea Garden Challenge, subject of one of our recent blogs, is attending the show.
He'll take his place alongside other well known garden personalities such as Monty Don, Carol Klein and Joe Swift.
When you're not in the theatre listening to their entertaining and informative schedule of talks, there are zones covering a range of other activities.
The Grow & Eat zone where experts will be dispensing tips on kitchen gardens and allotments, there's a Know-how section to pick up new gardening skills, and the Life & Style zone will introduce you to the best in outdoor living.
Wildlife is catered for in another zone focussed on establishing the perfect habitat and, before leaving, visit the Marketplace for the latest ornaments, clothing and accessories.
The floral marquee will have a wonderful array of flowers and outside there are of course the show gardens and plant village, in an area transformed by the RHS into horticultural heaven.
If you want to join GardenSite on our sponsored garden, the show is open from 11 June – 14 June and further information on what to expect can be obtained from the Gardeners' World Live website.
