The horticultural show is held on the Sunday of the show in the Ridley Suite. Visitors make a point of coming in to this section of the Show every year and enjoy a quiet and fragrant retreat from the hustle and bustle of the showground. 

Are you an accomplished grower, or maybe just enjoy your garden?  We encourage everyone to enter, so don’t think your flowers, plants, fruit or vegetables are not good enough to exhibit.  GIVE IT A GO!  Newcomers are always welcome and it is a great day out for all the family, particularly if you win a prize! 

We look forward to seeing you there.  It is you, the exhibitor, who makes the Show a great success by creating a wonderful diversity of imagination and effort – from decorative dahlias to radiant roses and magnificent marrows!
