Anyone attend this show yesterday 29/7/17.
I thought it was an excellent show, Just enough plant stands, the other stands related to gardening, The walled garden was looking super since my last visit.
No Micky mouse show gardens, Some good talks in the pavilion, ticket two for one entrance to visit house. Cost of entry 8 good value.
Two small problems though.
1. There were three entrances where money was being collected so if you paid in when you got to the walled garden they were collecting entrance fee ther and when you came back towards the house there was a one way system and they were collecting money there two, ok you could get a stamp on your wrist which I hate but they need to look at this system.
2. they should have cut the grass in the car parking area as when it rained people were getting wet feet on the way back.

Aside from that excellent show well done to the organizers, have to be careful not to let it get too big in future years as I thought it was just right but it will get bigger and be a huge success. The site and location has everything needed to run a successful show into the future but keeping it under control will be the problem.
