Gardening icon Monty Don will be at Antrim Castle Gardens on Saturday, May, 7, to give his expert opinion on all things gardening to visitors at the Allianz Garden Show Ireland.

The Show which will run for three days, from Friday to Sunday, May 6-8, counts the return of the BBC Gardeners’ World presenter as its star attraction.

Show patron Monty Don returns to the event for the third time and will be giving talks on his bestselling book ‘Fork to Fork’ as well as sharing his wealth of knowledge during his walkabout of the Show.

He said: “There is no doubt that the Allianz Garden Show Ireland is one of the warmest, friendliest welcomes I get anywhere. What is great about it is it seems to be family orientated, you get young children, you get grandparents and you get a whole wide range of people and cross section of society sharing the event”

2016 promises to be the biggest Show yet and with over 20 separate gardens to view there will be lots to inspire every level of gardener. There will be talks on how to grow your own vegetables and floral arrangements for your dinner table and plenty of opportunities to meet the expert exhibitors who are happy to answer any questions. The Show will also be celebrating the NI Year of Food & Drink 2016 with a Food NI Pavilion. For more information visitwww.gardenshowireland.com.
