Taking part in Harrogate Flower Shows

Harrogate Flower Shows could not exist without the many hundreds of people who take part each year as competitors, exhibitors and visitors. There are many ways you can be part of Britain's best gardening event.

Show gardens

The Avenue show gardens are one of the most popular features of the spring show and an opportunity for talented garden designers and landscapers to showcase their ideas to nearly 60,000 people. There is a range of support available, so if you think you would be able to create a garden to inspire our visitors we would like to hear from you! Please email us on [email protected] or call 01423 546157.

Secret sheds

We will be opening the door to new possibilities this spring, with a feature called Secret Sheds. Designers, students and community gardening groups will be invited to create a surprise in each of the sheds around our showground. If you or your group would like the opportunity to wow our visitors, please get in touch on [email protected] or call 01423 546157.

Floral art

The spring show hosts Britain's biggest display of flower arranging and floristry. We have 11 classes for individual flower arrangers, as well as a competition for flower clubs. There are five classes for florists, ranging from experienced competitors to students, plus an annual challenge for floristry colleges across the region. For more details about how you can take part download the Spring 18 Preview Schedule below.

If you are not ready to enter a class, but would like to try your hand at flower arranging or floristry, come along to our Floral Hub in the Floral Pavilion to have a go for free! 

Annual daffodil show

Harrogate Flower Shows host a number of 'shows within a show', offering amateur growers the opportunity to showcase their fantastic work to thousands of people. At the spring event, we host the annual show for the Northern Daffodil Group, as well as displays for many other specialist gardening groups. If you would like to join the Northern Daffodil Group and take part in the show contact them on [email protected] Schedules for the show will be available soon.

Every year we welcome hundreds of exhibitors to our flower shows, bringing everything from plants to picture frames. Click here for more information about exhibiting at the 2018 Harrogate Spring Flower Show.
