gardeners world live 2021

We are so excited to have been chosen to build our show garden 'A Very British Affair' at BBC Gardeners World Live at the NEC in Birmingham! 2020's event was postponed due to the outbreak of Covid-19, but this amazing event has now been re-scheduled for August 2021. We have worked in collaboration with Tony from Antony Lionel Garden Design to create this design, which we hope will wow visitors at the event later this year. Our teams will be busy for around four weeks prior to the show, working hard to turn this design into a reality. 

The garden is compact yet beautiful - it is based on the great British woodland, incorporating a living-moss wall, rain curtain and dining area, all tied together by a water rill which takes the flow of water to a seating area around a fire-pit and moat.

Watch out on our Facebook and Instagram pages for updates on the build!

our gardening tips for


  1. Now is the time to dig over borders to prepare for next seasons planting, and add a good quality compost or well-rotted manure to the soil to add nutrients for the planting ahead. 

  2. It is a great time to get supports in place so that shrubs and plants can grow into or around them as we enter the prime growing season. 

  3. Feed shrubs with a fertiliser, especially ones coming into flower such as camellias. 

  4. Cut back ornamental grasses now so that new growth can come through. They can be taken fairly low to the ground to encourage new shoots. 

  5. Prepare new seed beds and trays for veggies, fruits and summer flowering plants.  

  6. Prune back fuchsias, being careful not to cut too close to new buds. 

  7. Winter bedding plants such as pansies appreciate being dead headed now and they can get their new flowers prepped for the warmer weather.  

  8. Trim back deciduous hedging now before birds start their nesting. 

  9. Now is a good time to move anything such as shrubs, before the new seasons growth gets underway. Make sure soil isn't too waterlogged or frozen - we might be at risk of a late frost still! 

  10. Dead-head hydrangeas from last year, and cut back to approx one third of last years growth. 

  11. Trim back winter flowering heathers to prevent them from becoming leggy. 

  12. Lawns can be mown, but make sure you choose a dry day and keep your mower on a high setting for now.
