A cutting-edge collection of show gardens will display some of the latest trends and design concepts in horticulture and outdoor space for ample inspiration for budding landscapers and gardeners.

There will be plenty of shopping opportunities as the RHS Floral Marquee will have a beautiful selection of plants and displays on offer from some of the UK’s top nurseries. Plus the new Rose Festival will be featuring some of the biggest names in roses.

    Don’t let the jobs build up, try to keep on top of the jobs by doing a little everyday.

    Don’t let tasks build up – do a little, often and you’ll keep on top of things.

    Plant lots of seeds, drink lots of tea and remember to water. Plants just need a little love, not to much fuss!

    My best gardening tip is to try to do something in the garden regularly, whether it’s pruning, weeding, p,an ting or watering. The more you do in small bursts the easier it is in the long run – this way you will find time to enjoy sitting in the garden enjoying the fruits of your labours.

    Pull weeds out whilst they are still small so they don’t have chance to seed, remember one years seed is seven years weeds

    Try to avoid actually standing on the soil as much as possible as you will compact it down and spoil the soil structure

    do a little bit each day, even if it’s only 15 minutes. then you’ll keep on top of it all

    Make sure you rake the debris off the grass in autumn to avoid nasty surprises in spring. Aka saplings!

    If possible install a water butt. Saves wasting rain water and it’s free for watering your garden. A good alternative is a few large pop bottles placed around the garden to collect rainwater in.

    Ooh, this would be great! We’ve just got into gardening after we moved out of London in January but I think we need a bit of a helping hand…. between the neighbour’s cat who dug up our carrot shrubs thinking the patch was a litter tray (!!) and the snails, we’ve so far not been hugely successful…

    Add a drop of washing up liquid to watering can when watering pots. The water will soak in soul instead of running right through.

    Best tip is buy gloves for prickly weeds like in my garden and Google weeds to make sure you are not digging up something worth keeping.
