WHAT’S NEW?

POSTCARDS FROM THE HEDGE

This year the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show will be sending plant postcards from across the globe as it invites visitors to travel the world in their garden. A new exhibition tracing the ancestry of many of the world’s most popular plants will form the centrepiece for this year’s theme, Postcards from the Hedge.

Other highlights of the show will include Harrogate’s world-famous giant vegetable competition which this year has three new classes for novices. And, as usual, Kitchen Garden Live will be featuring a host of grow-your-own experts and a chance to meet the KG magazine’s editorial team.
