Visiting Malvern Spring Show

Hi - off to Malvern tomorrow.  Long shopping list and money burning a hole in my pocket - can't wait.  Anyone else visiting - what are you going to look at and shop for?  I am looking for lily bulbs and unusual perennials - hope the weather is kind.

    I am going - getting excited. have made a list, that keeps being added to,

    People who haven't been are missing a treat, I think

    Looking for water plant advice, and shopping for shade lovers, clematis (always) , some perennials, But especially for a acer fromn a specialist, but will have to watch pennies for that.

    And some gardening things a tool and for some ideas.

    Based on today may get blown away though!!

    Is it usually better than the GW show at the NEC?

    I last went to NEC 3 years ago and was disappointed. Then discovered Malvern I cannot compare now, but always enjoy Malvern - 

  • Looking forward to hearing what you got up to Lesley — am travelling up there from Cardiff on Saturday, having given the RHS Cardiff show a miss this year in lieu of a first trip to Malvern!
