Beaulieu is excited to be hosting a brand new outdoor spring gardening event, with the BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair, partnered by Hillier, a sign of brighter times ahead, taking place in the grounds of Palace House and the National Motor Museum from Friday 28 May to Sunday 30 May 2021.
Brought together by the organisers of the 28-year strong BBC Gardeners’ World Live at the NEC, the colourful show presents a select number of high-quality nurseries with displays and plants for sale, an inspirational collection of planting ideas in the Beautiful Borders and a range of gardening exhibitors to shop from. The BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine team will be on hand with spring gardening tips at their What To Do Now Stage.
Hillier Nurseries has been announced as headline partner. Founded in 1864 in Winchester, Hampshire, today Hillier has a network of 18 Garden Centres across the South of England, is the UK’s largest grower of semi-mature trees and grows more than 900,000 plants a year at the company’s Hampshire Nurseries.
The stunning Hillier Experience feature at the heart of the show will be overflowing with spring garden ideas and planting combinations. Visitors will be able to speak to experts from Hillier, on hand sharing one-to-one advice. The Hillier Experience shop will allow inspiration to become reality, with a selection of plants grown by Hillier at their Hampshire nurseries available to purchase. The show organisers are delighted that Hillier plan to launch two stunning new plants at the Spring fair.
The new show will harness the synergy between gardening and food by incorporating a BBC Good Food Market presenting specialist and seasonal produce to taste and buy. Visitors will enjoy all this, plus toe-tapping live entertainment from the bandstand and mouth-watering delights from a hand-picked selection of independent street food vendors.
As gardening becomes increasingly popular and positively contributes to our wellbeing in this uncertain climate, the new outdoor BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair offers up a chance for more gardeners to experience the Gardeners’ World brand coming to life.
