The 'Old-School Flower Show' is on again
The Old-School Flower Show is quite simply designed to get you to bring in a piece of your garden to share with other gardeners. Its reminiscent of a country fair with plenty of inspiring garden related prizes to win.
Help us resurrect the old fashioned flower shows of the past – and celebrate one of life’s simple pleasures – flowers! Join in by bringing a flower to display at the Fair (entries cloose at 1pm Sunday). Take this opportunity to show off your talents.

So, what do you need to do?
Pick a single bloom from your garden - perhaps a rose, tropical bloom, dahlia, lily, lycorus, early camellia or unusual leaf, seed pod or interesting foliage. Bring it to the Flower Show Room (No 90 on Map) at the Collectors' Plant Fair, between 8am Saturday 6th April to 1pm Sunday 7th April. There you can write your name, mobile phone number and the name of your flower on one of our stickers. Pay your gold coin donation (proceeds go to charity) and enjoy the fair. Flower entries will be judged at 2pm by Elisabeth Swane and the winners contacted immediately.
The Flower Show Room will be open all weekend for serious sticky-beaking!
What will you bring?
