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.

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!
