We are still travelling in the UK. On Wednesday we visited Press Preview day at the BBC Gardeners’ World Live garden show near Birmingham. Shown here is Dan Hartley’s Show Garden, which won the Best in Show. The show is open to the public from Thursday to Sunday and is on every June. It is well worth visiting.

This was my fourth time at the event and it is more relaxed and easier to get about than Chelsea. Even though it may have less to see it is still a huge show that can easily fill a day. As well as show gardens there’s a floral marquee and there are lots of plant exhibits. The show also features BBC gardening celebrities including Monty Don, Adam Frost, Frances Tophill, Sue Kent and Joe Swift.
