The organisers hope that this will expand each year from now on.
This year’s exhibitors will include members of the Berkshire Bonsai Society with a wonderful display of miniature trees and members of the Fuchsia Society with examples of their beautiful plants. Both will be on hand to answer questions from visitors.
Also on display will be a floral boat and display to promote the Chelsea Fringe — an “informal” addition to the Chelsea Flower Show — and a floral pageant for Henley.
Members of Henley in Bloom will be there to talk about the town’s bid to win Britain in Bloom 2014 having taken the regional town title last year.
At 2pm there will be a gardeners’ question time featuring John Negus, a knowledgeable and inspirational speaker on all things horticultural.
He will answer questions on anything from disease and pests to wonderful plants and planting, so come armed with your queries.
