Don’t miss: Jill and Martin Fish

Wednesday 19–Sunday 23 July 2023

Husband and wife team Martin and Jill are a passionate plot-to-plate double act. There is little that senior RHS judge and broadcaster Martin doesn’t know about growing fruit and veg; while recipe writer Jill’s culinary creativity puts all of those expertly grown ingredients to their tastiest uses. A must-see for foodies and grow-your-own enthusiasts.
