Three Counties Spring Gardening Show

In an attempt to encourage gardeners to pitch in and do their part to help the planet, the annual horticultural calendar’s first big national gardening show is pushing the biodiversity message.

The entire programme, from May 12 to May 15, will be dedicated to conserving the natural environment, all this at the Spring Gardening Show on the Three Counties Showground in Malvern.

Changes in the way one gardens will show how it can have an impact on the local and global diversity will be the theme of the show.

There are two walk-through gardens in the new Garden Harmony Theatre that are designed by Paul Hervery-Brooks, the 2009 Chris Beardshaw Monitoring Scholarship winner. The Companion Garden covers pest-repellent companion planting while the In-Flight Garden is a pocket space of wildlife habitats and native species.

Included are a star-studded line up of gardeners, industry experts and wildlife enthusiast  all hosted James Alexander-Sinclair, TV gardener and designer, for this four-day programme of demonstrations and discussions that range from rain gardens, habitat creations, natural predators, log hotels and compost cafes.

The general public can do their part to preserve and create habitats, compost waste, garden organically, did ponds and plant native species says show press and PR manager Sharon Gilbert.

No matter the scale it is important to maintain the momentum and promote the message to many people because it all contributes to the global effort and events like ours need to get behind the initiative.

Other new attractions at the show, a partnership between the TCAS and the RHS, include Landscape Live, Country Living Pavilion, a Discovery Zone for younger gardeners and a vegetable planting project in association with CARE farms.
