They have continued with the layout from previous years with three zones, this year called Feast, Grow and Inspire. These will all be filled with plants, shopping and food to reflect their themes.

The Great Garden Festival, which is part of the show, includes a wide variety of hands-on inspiration, advice, shopping and entertainment. There will be an anniversary maze, a new mouth-watering Feast zone and a Scarecrow Competition.
