From the 9th to the 12th of October, Grand Designs Live will be host to over 500 exhibitors, from six sectors including gardens and food and it’s a great place for ideas. We are proud sponsors of The Urban Allotment Garden, which will be situated at the heart of Grand Gardens. The idea behind the garden is to provide visitors with the chance to find out about growing fruit and vegetables at home, as well as rearing chickens and even beekeeping. There will be experts to ask about how to grow your own produce so you can leave the show and immediately start planning your ideal garden in time for spring. The Urban Allotment Garden will also offer a calm and relaxing cafe.
The garden features seasonal soft and top fruit as well as a variety of vegetables and herbs all of which is aimed to give you a taste of what you can achieve in your own gardens, whether big or small. If you are going we’d love to hear what you thought of it, so email in, Facebook message or tweet us with pictures too. Have fun and we hope to see you there!
