“Interest in the show is continuing to grow and our focus on gardening and horticulture is really helping to attract visitors who come to the show to buy products, as well as enjoy the entertainment.

“The one area of the show we are particularly keen to grow is the show gardens so if there are landscapers who are looking to generate more business this could be the perfect opportunity
