Green Fingers Festival at Eden Project coming in June

This year's Green Fingers Festival at the Eden Project in Cornwall will take place on June 1-21.

This year, the revamped gardening festival's celebrity line-up includes The Skinny Jean Gardeners, Charlie Dimmock and award-winning British garden designer Chris Beardshaw.

The three-week festival will also include daily talks, tours and demos across a wide range of gardening topics for gardeners of all abilities. It is free with an Eden Project day ticket.

Now in its second year, the event will include expert gardener talks in which Eden's acclaimed horticulture team will be sharing their knowledge. The hour-long talks will cover everything from allotments and growing your own, to composting, wildlife gardening, flowers and ornamentals, and exotic gardening.

There will also be talks on selected days from celebrity gardener guests, including Diarmuid Gavin (appearing at the festival on June 2), Christine Walkden (June 3), Chris Collins (June 6-7), Anne Swithinbank (June 9), Chris Beardshaw (June 11), Ben Faulks - aka Mr Blooom - (June 13-14), Charlie Dimmock (June 18), David Domoney (June 19), and The Skinny Jean Gardeners - also known as brothers Lee and Dale Connelly - (June 20-21).
