Admission to the show provides entry to the 300ft x 80ft Horticultural Pavilion. Enjoy a quiet and fragrant retreat from the hustle and bustle of the showground.
Amongst the attractions are stands of vibrant coloured Fuchsias grown by experts and enthusiasts as well as plants and flowers we all know and love and some you don't. Visitors get a chance to speak to the members of the Southern Fuchsia and Pelargonium Society and the National Vegetable Society, as well as cacti and succulent specialists with full hardy and tender succulents and cacti from around the world. Displays of shrubs from the usual to the unusual and hardy grasses and perennials you can grow at home and the British favourite - the magnificent colours and scents of Roses. Alongside the wonderful selection of plants you'll be stunned by the award winning displays of Chrysanthemum blooms with cuttings available to buy and Dahlias grown by a very enthusiastic grower on his allotments who has been featured on BBC's Gardener's World. Visitors can meet the specialists and be inspired and tempted to purchase from their sales tables and ask them questions that have been bugging you all year.
The Horticultural Pavilion opens from around 9.30 am on Sunday, the first day after judging has been completed and closes at 5.30pm and 9 am on Bank Holiday Monday and closes at 5.30pm.
We look forward to seeing you in the Horticultural Pavilion and if you would like to exhibit or compete in a class see details below:

Horticultural Schedule available Spring 2017
In addition to Trade Exhibitors we have individual exhibitors schedules with 98 classes of vegetable, floral art, dahlias, chrysanthemums, fuchsias, pelargoniums, cacti, succulents and fruit.
New this year are two classes called Plot to Plate. Each class requires the entrant to show produce that they have grown in their garden, allotment or even window box in its natural form, then a chutney, pickle or preserve made from what they have grown and finally a baked item including that fruit or vegetable. Aimed to encourage the general community to participate these classes are open to all non-NVS members.
There are also five free to enter classes for young people under the age of sixteen. For all horticultural allotments and gardening societies we have class H27 – which is a display within an allocated area of 6ft x 3ft at normal table height (tables provided) to be representative of the society and its interests.
