Gardening favourites Monty Don, Joe Swift and Carol Klein offered expert advice on greening up spaces while culinary whizzes Raymond Blanc and John Torode treated visitors to a feast of foodie talks.

Green-fingered DJ Jo Whiley headed to the festival for the first time to talk about her love of gardening and music, while a host of horticultural heroes, including garden designer Chris Beardshaw, florist Jonathan Moseley, plantswoman Sarah Raven and TV gardener Frances Tophill completed the line-up.
