Apart from the extensive selection of retail companies at the Show there are many other attractions. Expert advice daily from ‘The Gardening Doctors’, Val & Steve Bradley, along with the enthusiastic environmentalists, Jules & Lance. The show will be joined by knowledgeable key speakers: on Friday Dr Ian Bedford, a research entomologist, will be explaining the best ways of ‘Gardening For Butterflies’ and be holding ‘The Pest Clinic’ afterwards. On Saturday we are joined by Professor Alan Aylward from The Woodland Trust who will be giving a talk on ‘Standing Up For Trees’ and then on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning Jules Simmons will be holding a chat on ‘Bats, Bugs, Ponds & Drought’ and will enthusiastically offer advice on keeping your garden happy and healthy.

It’s not all about gardening. Music is provided by the Jazz Magic Trio and vintage songs by Lianna Haynes. The Studio Shop artisans will be demonstrating their skilled work in a variety of mediums. There will children’s entertainment with juggling, face painting, bouncy fun, toddler funfair and puppet shows and Huxley birds of prey will fly to the skies ….a great day out for the whole family.
It is an excellent time to relax and explore Loseley: the stunning parkland and the incredibly beautiful walled gardens, all included in the Garden Show ticket. There will be a free guided walk in the Walled Gardens on Friday with Loseley’s head gardener explaining the work required to keep the gardens in good health and blooming. The garden show ticket has the added bonus of offering a special discounted entry to the free flow tours of the downstairs rooms of beautiful Loseley House.
The show is growing year on year as it travels along its own garden path, with the original concept holding true, to give visitors the opportunity to source an innovative range of items for the garden and house which are not easily found on the high street. Come to the garden party and revitalise your garden and home whilst treating yourself. Life continues to be very good at The Garden Show so take some time out to enjoy!
