GARDEN SHOWS GUIDE 2018/2019

There are many annual horticultural / garden shows and fairs held in the UK covering a wide variety of subject areas. Some are suitable for taking children to others are probably not. We attend many of these shows so we thought we would write reviews on them.

We give our honest and independent opinion about these shows. It's all very well reading the glowing opinions that the organisers give but sometimes they don't tell you everything. You are guaranteed that our reviews are the result of a visit to the show.
