THE horticultural section, which was introduced to the show last year, is twice the size this year.
There is a floristry display created by the Berkshire College of Agriculture which includes a silver-medal winning garden from the BBC’s Gardener’s World show and an “eco-car” covered with plants and watered using solar panels.
There will also be garden advice from photo-journalist John Negus, who trained at Wisley Gardens and Merrist Wood horticultural college.
Specialising in trees, shrubs and climbers, he enjoys sharing his passion for gardening and lectures regularly at gardening clubs, WIs and many other societies as well as broadcasting regularly on BBC radio. He is a member of the Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire and Kent federations of judges and is on the Royal Horticultural Society’s list of speakers.
The show will also welcome the Bonsai and Fuchsia Societies and a representative from the Chelsea Fringe Festival, the alternative flower festival which came to Henley for the first time this year with a number of events including a floral flotilla on the Thames.
