Come along and hear him being interviewed on Friday 29 April and Saturday 30 April by Pamela Ballantine in the Garden Talks Tent! Meet him as he explains the thinking behind the ‘Clockwork Garden’, the special installation he is creating at Antrim Castle Gardens.

And on Sunday 1 May, meet Joel Bird, TV presenter of Your Garden Made Perfect and The Great Garden Revolution, and winner of the first Shed of the Year competition (yes, there is one!). Pamela Ballantine will explore just how this musician, potter, builder, carpenter, painter, swing dancer and writer also created such an amazing shed and allotment garden!

Resident gurus, Geoff Stebbings whose weekly tips you can follow in the lead-up to the Show and Klaus Laitenberger will be on hand each day of the Show to answer all your gardening questions. They’ll be giving advice on everything from growing organic vegetables that taste amazing to creating a tiny garden using containers.

Hundreds of plants from specialist nurseries will be on display and to purchase. The growers themselves are on hand in the Growers’ Pavilions or Plant Mall to share their knowledge and give expert advice on planting and growing.

Meet local Flower Farmers, Aisling & Andy McCormick of Sow Grateful, who are cultivating the new wave of farm-to-vase using sustainable floristry techniques. Demos, workshops & talks in the Flower Farmer Pavilion will have you creating the zero-waste cut flower garden!

The Floral Design Pavilion will feature floral artistry created by members of the Northern Ireland Group of Flower Arrangement Societies (NIGFAS). Groups from all around the country will be displaying their talents with magnificent creations.

… and there’s more!
