Welcome to another exciting episode of our podcast! Today, I'm thrilled to share my recent adventure at Gardeners' World Live 2024. This year’s event was held at the NEC Birmingham and showcased the very best in gardening, from stunning show gardens to informative talks by top horticultural experts. If you’re passionate about gardening or looking for inspiration for your garden, this post is for you!

Show Gardens: A Feast for the Eyes and Taste Buds

One of the main attractions at Gardeners' World Live 2024 was the spectacular show gardens. This year, there was a noticeable trend towards incorporating more vegetables into the designs, highlighting the beauty and utility of edible gardens. Here are two standout gardens:

  • The Viewers' Garden: This garden was a wonderful example of how to blend vegetables seamlessly with ornamental plants and upcycling materials to create a gorgeous garden.
  • The Plot with Chickens: This garden was a delightful mix of vegetable plots and chickens. Designed by Ben, it showcased how you can create a sustainable and productive garden while keeping chickens. I had the pleasure of talking to Ben about his inspiration and the practical aspects of integrating chickens into a garden.

In the Halls: A Shopper's Paradise

After exploring the show gardens, I ventured into the halls where an array of gardening products awaited. Here, I picked up a few items that caught my eye:

  • Innovative Gardening Tools: From ergonomic hand tools to state-of-the-art watering systems, the range of products on offer was impressive.
  • Unique Plant Varieties: I found some rare and unusual plants that I can't wait to add to my garden.
  • Garden Decor: Beautiful garden ornaments and decor items were available to help personalise any garden space.
