It’s the UK’s hottest hobby and the nation’s fastest growing gardening event! The Edible Garden Show is putting down new roots at Alexandra Palace, London in March, bringing the popular show to a bumper new crop of visitors.

Bigger and better than ever before, the award-winning three day event is a fertile mix of celebrity speakers, interactive advice sessions, cookery demonstrations, innovative products and a fabulous range of exhibitors selling everything you need for a slice of the ‘good life’.

Perfectly timed for the beginning of the growing season the show is buzzing with tips on keeping bees, raising chickens, brewing beer, saving energy, healthy baking and dishing up delicious meals using home grown ingredients. It’s a must-see show for anyone interested in self-sufficiency and packed with masses of trendy and chic ideas for conjuring yummy, healthy meals from plot to plate.

TV presenter James Wong continues his campaign to persuade the nation to plant exotic edibles that can survive the British climate and other celebrities giving daily talks include Christine Walkden; gardening guru on the BBC One Show; trendy forager and wild food expert Mark Lloyd; prolific writer, radio and TV presenter Pippa Greenwood and author Naomi Schillinger who has written a best-selling book with tips on growing your own in small spaces. Poultry vet Victoria Roberts will be back with her fabulous talks on keeping healthy, happy hens and there will be delicious dishes whipped up by Rachel Green in the Cookery Theatre. Popular TV chef Phil Vickery will be cooking up a storm for one day only on Saturday March 29 and Blue Peter gardener Chris Collins will be at the show on Friday March 28.
