Sandringham Flower Show
Wednesday 27 July
Sandringham Flower Show now in its 139th year, is a unique event offering not only the best in horticulture but also an excellent day out, filled with family entertainment.
Many of the region’s leading nurseries and horticultural specialists exhibit with around 200 trade stands (both horticultural and general). See display gardens by leading designers, a craft marquee, main arena of events, children’s entertainment and a military band.
The Royal marquees contain competitions in vegetables, fruit, flowers and floral art, with entries grown by local residents; there are also some open classes which anyone may enter. In the amateurs’ marquee, local gardening and horticultural clubs enter a judged display competition, whilst the Horticultural Trades marquee features displays by leading nurseries.
The Gardeners’ Forum is the venue for gardening talks by top television gardeners Chris Beardshaw and Alan Mason, who are joined by Martyn Davey, former Head of Horticulture & Design at Easton College, and radio gardener and allotment expert Terry Walton. Nick Hamilton from Barnsdale Gardens will also be present.
