The North’s greatest garden party has lots of fresh ideas for visitors who enjoy
growing their own fruit and veg. See them at the Great British Allotment area,
or if ornamental plants are more your thing, head to the Floral Marquee to find
a huge choice from some of the UK’s top nurseries.

Buy tickets now – or join the RHS and get a massive discount on your tickets!

The show will have four fabulous zones to explore:
Grow is the floral heart of the show – your chance to see magnificent displays of rare and familiar plants. Pick the brains of leading nurserymen and RHS experts and buy fabulous plants and practical tools. The ever popular floral marquee will be hosting a series of hands-on demos for you to join in.

Inspire pushes the boundaries of garden design with cutting-edge ideas and concepts. This year’s Young Designer Gardens feature Eco Innovations, while the Galaxy Gardens look to the heavens for inspiration.

Feast is a celebration of everything ‘Grow your Own’! The zone takes you all the way from edible gardens and Great British Allotments to fruit and vegetable competitions, plot-to-plate demonstrations and the Great Taste Food Market.

Escape brings the seaside to the heart of Cheshire for this evocation of country and coastal living. It’s a shopper’s paradise, featuring beautiful furniture, practical tools and over 100 artists and craftspeople.

Plus they have the RHS Summer Fruit & Vegetable Competition Pavilion which will house the best of Grow Your Own along with specialist fruit and herb exhibitors.
