It had to be one of the coldest Spring Gardening Shows ever. Thermal vests and woolly gloves were definitely in evidence as I tried to coax participants into my ‘Potting tent’ …”It is marginally warmer in here…honest!”

Over the three days of the show, families and individuals produced garden inspired tiles – each tile a part of a giant daisy or sunflower. The panels will be installed by the fishing lake at the Three Counties Showground, commemorating twenty five years of the Spring Gardening Show.
