Woodhall Spa is to get its first Home and Gardens Festival when a wealth of plant traders and home and garden product suppliers will open for business for a free admission Garden Show.
The Home and Garden Festival will be open in Jubilee Park, Woodhall Spa throughout the May Day Bank Holiday weekend which is one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year in the garden and home calendar.
Organisers are keen that Lincolnshire should show off the best it has to offer at the event which has attracted traders from across the UK but are particularly keen to attract local Lincolshire growers and garden companies who want the opportunity to attend specialist garden event and sell direct to the eager Lincolnshire public.
“The May weekend will be the time to shake off the dreariness of a long wet spring and get into the garden — and our exhibitors provide everything you need to do it.” says event organiser Conrad Murray of Good Locally.
“We’re inviting growers and plantsmen from across the UK’s most fertile county to show what Lincolnshire does best, which is cultivating strong healthy plants and sell them to people to grow in local gardens.”
Keen gardeners and house proud families attending the heavily advertised free event will also get to choose from a wide range of garden plants and garden supplies, potted plants and accessories and sundries, mowers and equipment as well as garden leisure goods such as hot tubs and barbecues.
An international food and craft market will also run alongside the event and Jubilee Park with its open air swimming pool and leisure and sports facilities and campsite will all be open to the public.
“Traders are busy planning special show offers which will provide the public with garden bargains and enable traders to steal a march on their competitors”, says Mr Murray.
“The park will be busy anyway with pool users and caravanners so it is a perfect opportunity for buyers and sellers to connect.
“Lincoln is a county of gardeners and we’re keen that our traders should meet the gardening needs of Lincolnshire people” he added.
The Food and Garden Festival is the first for Woodhall Spa but organisers are already planning a second event for the second May Bank Holiday which will take place in Lincoln.
“We have another site booked for Lincoln but we would also run something in the city centre and plans are afoot to do that” says Mr Murray. This is a great opportunity for gardeners to buy and traders to sell on two of the best gardening and leisure and spring shopping weekends on the calendar.
