The really great news is that, in addition to all your favourite show features, admission to the 2020 Harrogate Autumn Flower Show will also include access to Newby’s award-winning gardens, complete with some of Europe’s biggest herbaceous flower borders, 15 stunning garden ‘rooms’ and family adventure garden!
Blooms in the rooms
Inspired by the breath-taking interiors of Newby Hall our talented teams of floral artists will create an amazing series of major plant and flower installations in the beautiful stately home rooms.
Step back in time to the days when traditional crafts were common. From hand-forged garden gates to woven willow fencing, you can rediscover skills once used on country estates all over England.
Reduce your reliance on the supermarket by growing your own garden menu. Find out how to produce great home-grown fruit and veg, and then see what delicious meals you could make with the help of our talented chefs.
Join the plant finder’s trail
Our new home at Newby Hall offers a unique opportunity to pick out the plants you love as you tour the fabulous gardens, then visit top plant nurseries from across the country with your shopping list!
Grown with pride
Autumn is our chance to celebrate all those who dedicate their time to showcasing their passion for gardening! Whether it’s oceans of drop-dead gorgeous dahlias, outrageously oversized onions or perfectly pristine potatoes, they all take many months of hard work and dedication to grow. We celebrate their success with Britain’s biggest exhibition by specialist gardening groups, two fantastic fruit and veg shows and, of course, a world-famous giant vegetable competition.
The North of England has a wealth of fantastic charities and community groups. Our ‘have a go’ mini-gardens offer them the chance to tell their story for our visitors, as well as giving you great ideas to take away and use at home.
Activities for children
There will be plenty of hands-on fun for young visitors to the show, plus access to Newby Hall’s fantastic adventure garden. Rides on the miniature railway and boat trips are also available at extra cost.
About Newby Hall & Gardens
Nestling on the side of the River Ure, between Harrogate and Ripon, Newby Hall is one of the finest stately homes designed by the famous 18th Century architect Robert Adam.
Its herbaceous borders are among the longest in Europe and were created by the late Major Edward Compton as the centrepiece for some 25 acres of award-winning gardens, designed and planted as ‘rooms’ to provide year-round interest. The borders have recently been completely replanted in beautiful pastel shades and will be in their full glory for the flower show!
Among Newby’s 15 different ‘rooms’ are a rose garden, water garden, tropical garden, white garden, rock garden, woodland garden and, of course, an autumn garden where hydrangea, salvia, sedum, echinacea, verbena and some 800 dahlias provide one last hurrah until the first frosts of October.
