You are invited to our 2018 Summer Showcase … an event not to be missed!

Over 3,000 trade and home gardeners visited last year’s Summer Showcase, a key event in the horticultural industry calendar for identifying innovative new varieties, plant collections and colour themes.

The 2018 Trade Summer Showcase dates are now set for Monday 9th to Friday 27th July.

For the Home Gardener we have a special evening; Wednesday 18th July, 4 – 8pm with proceeds of this evening going to two charities; The Katherine House Hospice and The David Colegrave Foundation.

Please save theses dates in your diary and join us for a truly inspirational day.

Visitors will be in for a special treat this Summer as we explore even more innovative products and retail ideas in the relaxed and friendly surroundings of the Oxfordshire countryside.
