Appropriately enough, during National Gardening Week, the first GARDENS ILLUSTRATED Festival is taking place in the picturesque Cotswold market town of Malmesbury from 17-18 April.
The event promises to be an exciting new fixture in the usual round of seasonal flower and gardening events with a lively programme of talks, workshops and plant and design clinics with gardening experts including Fergus Garrett, Sarah Raven, Anna Pavord and James Alexander-Sinclair. There is also an exhibitors’ marquee which will be stuffed full of plant and gardening goodies from GARDENS ILLUSTRATED’s favourite nurseries and garden product suppliers. For full details visit gardenfestival.com.
We’re thrilled to be part of this new event and will be taking our mobile Scotney greenhouse, (a great feat of engineering of which we’re very proud!) to showcase our National Trust collection of freestanding greenhouses. Jane and Nelly will be on hand to welcome visitors, chat about your greenhouse or conservatory project and offer advice. We’re always delighted to see old friends and familiar faces and hear about your greenhouse growing successes so if you’re visiting the Festival do come and say hello!
