Autumn Flower Show 2016

Great gardens always begin in the autumn and there is no better place to get started than the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show.

Featuring beautiful show gardens, stunning plant nursery displays, live expert demonstrations and great garden shopping, it offers everything you need to plan and perfect your outdoor space.

Our famous giant vegetable competition is set to wow visitors as colossal carrots, monster marrows and podgy parsnips weigh in for the battle of the bulge. 

Autumn show gardens

There will be plenty of chance to take home ideas from Inspiration Street and an unrivalled range of top quality plants to get the new growing season off to a good start.

Visitors to the Floral Pavilion will be amazed by the sheer spectacle of Britain’s biggest exhibition by specialist gardening groups. Lose yourself in a sea of over 5,000 fabulous autumn blooms, where colours and aromas combine to create an unforgettable experience.

Autumn is traditionally a time to reap the rewards of all the hard work in the fruit and veg garden, and top chefs in the Plot to Pot Cookery Theatre will have lots of ideas for transforming home grown produce into super meals for all the family.

Live talks and demonstrations

Those looking for ideas and inspiration for growing produce at home can join the Kitchen Garden Team for live talks and demonstrations every day of the show. There will also be help and advice with tricky plant problems in the new look Dig It Garden Theatre and the Garden Advice Bureau.

Thousands of top quality products offer great garden shopping for everything from gloves to greenhouses, while handmade crafts, lovely gifts and tempting specialist foods all add to the perfect day out.
