The Lincolnshire Show is only just over for another year but there’s already plenty to look forward to enjoying at the Lincolnshire Showground during the rest of 2012 – not least this weekend’s All About Gardening show.
Running from Friday, June 29th to Sunday, July 1st, we’ve taken a sneak peak at the news section on the organiser’s website – http://www.aztecevents.co.uk/all_about_gardening_lincolnshire_home.htm - to find out some of what our green-fingered visitors have in store for them…
Fullers Forestry and Landscaping was recently awarded Best in Show at the Lincolnshire Show for its garden design with Ed Fuller taking home the Ransome Cup. Fullers’ services are divided into Forestry, Landscaping and Garden Maintenance and will tailor his work exactly around your requirements. You’ll be able to find Ed and the Fullers Forestry Team in the Landscape and Design area where they will be happy to discuss plans and details to help your own garden vision come to life. If you have a rough idea of how you want to improve our garden layout, or know exactly what you want but just don’t know where to begin, Ed’s free consultancy will mean you can discuss your plans with an expert and maybe get you one step closer to that vision.
The British Isles Rose Society
The British Isles Rose Society (BIRS) will be holding their first National Rose Show which will be attracting many of the very best national exhibitors. Fred and Mary Barns, exhibitors from the Lake District, will be joining many of their exhibition rivals including Tony and Alice Bracegirdle from Ramsbottom who have been the national champions for the last 16 years. The Chairman of BIRS, David Wilce said “We will have a superb display of the very finest exhibits of our national flower – the rose. We have also catered for the less experienced exhibitors in what we have called the ‘Tomorrows Champion’ classes”. In addition there will be a magnificent display of Sweet Peas staged by some of the best regional exhibitors.

There’s nothing more satisfying then growing your own produce and enjoying flavours from the garden. Whether you enjoy growing at your allotment, in your greenhouse or on the windowsill, you can transform your garden into a bounty of delicious food and make trips to the supermarket a thing of the past.
