Hyde Hall Flower Show
1 - 4 August 2013, 10am - 5pm
This four-day summer flower show is a must for all plant-lovers, attracting visitors from near and far.
Browse, shop and get advice from almost 50 exhibitors including specialist nurseries and garden trade stands - many of whom are RHS Chelsea and Hampton Court Palace Flower Show medal winners.
Nurseries will be exhibiting floral displays to provide inspiration for colourful planting schemes for your own garden. Combined with a selection of trade stands selling garden sundries and ornaments, the Hyde Hall Flower Show has something for everyone.
Visitors attending the first day of the show have the added benefit of gardening Question & Answer sessions with BBC radio presenter, Ken Crowther.
And if the pace is all too much, there’s a 360-acre estate and gardens where you can relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility away from the hubbub of the show site, offering a great day out for the whole family.
Don't forget, there's ample free parking, and plenty of places to pick up refreshments if you need a break.
