Preview – Newark & Notts Garden Show

With the arrival of spring, your garden will start to awaken, last year’s plants will start to bud and the Newark Garden Show returns to the Newark Showground for another spectacular annual event dedicated to your gardening paradise.  The show returns on 19 – 21 April is set to be yet another hit with garden enthusiasts.

Find hundreds of high quality shopping stands selling everything for your garden, from plants, flowers and furniture, to hot-tubs, allotment tools and outdoor structures. To celebrate the spring’s arrival, the Newark & Notts Garden Show has arranged some extra special entertainment and attractions this year, to ensure your whole family can enjoy this fabulous day out.

Take a seat at Jean-Christophe Novelli’s BBQ area – the celebrity French chef will be attending the event on Sunday 21st April and demonstrating to visitors how you can cook the perfect BBQ food at your next garden party. This year the George Stephenson building will also be open and house many of our beautiful craft, gift, home and garden stands; this indoor shopping pavilion will also be rich with food and drink stands, many of which will offer yummy ‘try before you buy’ products.

On Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th the All About Dogs Show opens its paws and is free for all Garden Show ticket holders – so bring your dog along and enjoy the fun arena shows, entertainment and attractions to get your doggies tail wagging.

The best thing about the Newark Garden Show is perhaps its broad range of nurseries and garden companies, which ensures a broad variety of different plants, flowers and garden essentials. One company, Floral Media are local to Newark and specialise in Floral Design and Horticulture; friendly proprietors Steven & Paula Routledge offer a wealth of experience and depth of knowledge in the horticulture sector. You can find Floral Media at the Newark & Notts Garden Show where you can discuss your own landscaping design ideas, to help you turn your garden into a beautiful outdoor paradise.

The Newark & Notts Garden Show will take place on 19 – 21 April 2013.
