“I am coming back, 2024, to do a show garden at Gardeners’ World Live at the NEC in Birmingham”, said Frost enthusiastically. The essence of the garden, though admittedly “at the moment it’s still a couple of scribbles” is a secluded chef’s garden with a building, accessed by crossing a pool of water, filled with a mixture of fruit and vegetables. Frost will host talks on his Show Garden, and welcome chefs from sister event, BBC Good Food Show Summer, to share summer recipe ideas.

Returning to the NEC Birmingham (13 – 16 June), BBC Gardeners’ World Live, offers new and experienced gardeners a range of show gardens by award-winning designers, including Frost’s chef’s table inspired garden. The Association of Professional Landscapers’ avenue of gardens showcases a range of inspirational designs, while the ‘Beautiful Borders’ offer inspiration for small spaces and challenging places. The Floral Marquee is a celebration of plants (for purchase), including a gallery of new plants varieties, 1-to-1 plant expert advice, drop-in talks and more.

Monty Don, Adam Frost, Carol Klein, Frances Tophill and Joe Swift will be chatting with Nicki Chapman on the BBC Gardeners’ World Live Theatre about their favourite subject, and sharing topical tips and advice. The show also features a new Urban Garden area, The Plant Village, hundreds of garden retailers and exhibitors, the Houseplant Market and stage, the Schools’ Wheelbarrow Competition, guided Garden Walks and Plant Expert Tours and hands-on demonstrations.

Rachel Poletti-Gadd, Portfolio Director – Gardening Division at Immediate Live, organisers of BBC Gardeners’ World Events, said: “Whether planting up a window box or starting a garden from scratch, taking on a challenging space or using containers to garden on a terrace, gardening and growing provide us with so many benefits, from exercise in the fresh air to a mindful sense of satisfaction. BBC Gardeners’ World Live and our seasonal BBC Gardeners’ World Fairs are celebrations of hands-on gardening and the joy of plants. We can’t wait to welcome visitors along next year to discover the exciting highlights and new features on offer.”
