The Malvern Gardening Show
I loved the Malvern Gardening Show - not exhibited at this type of show before, so it was quite a gamble but one that I think will pay off. I was in the Country Living Magazine's marquee, along with some really lovely people - it makes such a difference when everyone is so friendly and helpful. I allowed 2 days to get to Malvern and set up the stand - I like the more relaxed start to a show, and it gave me time to have lunch with daughter Emma in Birmingham. The stand went together really well which surprised me and gave me a chance to wander around the showground. These are some of the gardens I liked, but I'm told that there weren't as many as in previous years - these are mostly the Chris Beardshaw Mentoring Scholarship gardens.
