The Gardeners World live event has been announced for 2016, and we for one are very glad. The event is one of the highlights of the gardening calendar, with showers from across the country and further afield, coming together to enjoy the wonders of the outdoor hobby we all know and love. It will be held at the NEC Birmingham from the 16th to the 19th of June 2016.
