Discover which schools are taking part in the School Garden Challenge and the inspiration for their gardens.
More than just a bookshop the Book Hub, new for 2018, is a space to meet authors and find out about their latest books. On Thursday and Friday, gardening writers entice you with their specialist knowledge and support you in developing your horticultural understanding.
Saturday and Sunday are all about families, with a range of authors aimed at youngsters holding interactive workshops, book readings and performances that will bring the written word alive.

Blue Peter Feature Garden
For many, the first gardening on TV was shown as part of the children’s programme, Blue Peter. Celebrating an outstanding 60 years of being broadcast, and over 5,000 episodes, this feature garden is our homage to a special part of our childhoods. Designed by one of Blue Peter’s former gardeners, Chris Collins, the garden takes you back to a simpler time of life, when the highlight of your day was teatime and sitting down to watch your favourite programme on TV.
