With an ‘early burst of summer’ set to hit southern England this weekend with highs of up to 24c expected, a visit to the inaugural Ascot Spring Garden Show should be on every keen gardener’s agenda.

The high-quality boutique event showcases 12 inspiring gardens, specialist nurseries with plants for sale, a range of quality exhibitors and free expert advice with the world-famous Ascot Racecourse providing an iconic backdrop.

A key highlight of this brand-new show is the complimentary Talks Theatre which plays host to a line-up of horticultural professionals offering expert advice, gardening tips, a sprinkle of humour and a dash of horticultural history.
