The Edible Garden Show was launched in response to the grow-your-own revolution sweeping the country as many more people are choosing healthier and greener options to be incorporated into their lives.

The show, which features not only the best advice and supplies for produce growing, but also Poultry & Livestock, Crafts, Kitchen cookery demonstrations and much, much, more will be at Alexandra Palace from 28th to 30th March.

Hint: This is the weekend of Mothers Day, so if you have a green-fingered mum, this might make an ideal gift for her!

Vegetable Sowing and Growing Table

Last year we (well actually, I should say our little one – it was her raised bed) had success with cauliflowers and beetroot, although they were teeny! We had a few gooseberries, though not enough for a pie, and a handful of luscious strawberries. Wonder what she might want to grow this year?! Whatever she chooses, we have a whole host of products in our new Garden section that will help!

She’s a demon with a sprayer, too. A Matabi Berry 5 was her object of choice last year and it withstood being pulled and twirled around the garden like a toy, and to her deight, was able to adequately soak any adults in close proximity.

The Potting Shed is a new online magazine offering gardening advice, product reviews and a round-up of the latest industry news and gossip!

These other gardening websites are worthy of a mention, too: The Reckless Gardener, Gardeners on the Go, and Gardeners Club.
