Gardeners' World's Monty Don to open The National Flower Show

Stunning displays of beautiful blooms will take centre stage when the National Flower Show returns to the wonderful Hylands House & Estate on May 19th-21st.

Gardening expert and popular Gardeners’ World presenter Monty Don will officially open the event, where visitors will be treated to wonderful floral displays, impressive garden designs and demonstrations from garden and floral experts.

Hundreds of exhibitors are set to offer an abundance of outdoor, home and garden shopping opportunities, and when your need for refreshment outstrips your hunger for horticulture, head to the Fine Food and Drink Festival to discover a tempting array of delicious food from home and abroad.

It’s the perfect place to find inspiration for your own homes and gardens, and a great day out for the family as your National Flower Show ticket also gains entry to Hylands House and its parklands.

Show director Matthew Upson said: “We are delighted to be bringing The National Flower Show to Hylands House & Estate for our third and best year yet. We are very happy to welcome one of the UK’s most well-known and popular gardeners Monty Don to open the show, helping us to celebrate the achievements of all of our exhibitors.”
