A touch of Frost at gar­den­ing show

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily -

AWARD-WIN­NING Stam­ford gar­den de­signer Adam Frost is mak­ing his mark on one of the UK’s largest crowd-pulling in­ter­ac­tive hor­ti­cul­tural shows – with his lat­est cre­ation play­ing a cen­tral role.

The Chelsea Flower Show triple gold medal­list has de­signed one of the main at­trac­tions at this year’s BBC Gar­den­ers’ World Live show.

Build­ing on his phi­los­o­phy of “gar­den­ing for all”, Adam has cre­ated the Grow Your Own Gar­den, an in­ter­ac­tive plot where vis­i­tors can learn from the ex­perts and pick up handy hints and tips on how to pro­duce de­li­cious home-grown fruit and veg­eta­bles.

The de­sign of the Grow Your Own Gar­den area will en­able the au­di­ence to sit in the gar­den, whilst watch­ing pre­sen­ta­tions and talks.

Fea­tures within the gar­den in­clude a glasshouse, shed and raised beds con­tain­ing a wide range of veg­eta­bles.

Hosted by Gar­den­ers’ Ques­tion Time reg­u­lar Matt Biggs, gar­den­ing gu­rus in­clud­ing Alan Titch­marsh, Monty Don and BBC Gar­den­ers’ World pre­sen­ters Alys Fowler, Joe Swift and Carol Klein will be among those us­ing the gar­den.

Adam, who is a reg­u­lar com­men­ta­tor and board mem­ber of the Hor­ti­cul­tural Traders As­so­ci­a­tion, said: “I am de­lighted to be in­volved once again with Gar­den­ers’ World Live, and in par­tic­u­lar to re-in­force what I strongly be­lieve in – that gar­den­ing is ac­ces­si­ble to any­one, you don’t have to be an ex­pert.”

Thou­sands of vis­i­tors are ex­pected to visit the Grown Your Own arena dur­ing the show, which runs from June 16 to 20 at the NEC in Birm­ing­ham.
