Grow Zone at Malvern Autumn Show
The grow zone is packed full of gardening delights, for those just starting out as well as seasoned gardeners.
The green-fingered should head straight to the plantsman’s paradise of the Gardening Village for passionate experts and impressive floral displays, last seasonal bargains and ideas for the new gardening year.
The Open-Air RHS Flower Show is a true celebration and collaboration of hand picked nurseries selling a spectrum of specialist herbs, roses, succulents, hardy perennials and much more, along with bulb merchants offering every kind of tuber, bulb and corms for next years blooming pots and spring borders.
A firm favourite each year, you won't believe your eyes at the size of the fruit and veg in the CANNA UK National Giant Vegetables Championship.
The Floral Art Section, adorned with a variety of exhibits, is heady with the scent, colour and visual appeal. Talented floral arrangers create stunning works of art to this year’s theme of ‘The Late Show’. Celebrating the richest elements of the last few months of the year the titles evoke the charms of the autumn and the festivities of winter. With classes names to include ‘Copper Curves’, ‘Tree of Fire’, ‘Harvest Hamper’ and ‘A Christmas Window’ among others. The creativity of arrangers is judged by form, colour, balance and proportions of design.
National Federation of Young Farmers (NFYFC) Floral Art Competitions create contemporary floral displays live during the show on Sunday. Under 17 year olds will follow the theme ‘My Favourite Sport’, those aged up to 22 use flowers to create a tribute to ‘My Sporting Hero’. Whilst there are some innovative skills demonstrated by under 27’s in the eldest category ‘Sporting Pursuits’.
