Wyevale Garden Centres also take their brand into the outside areas this year with a show garden. The garden is a collaboration with award-winning garden designer Alexandra Froggatt to create a traditional rose garden inspired by the landscapes and gardens of Capability Brown featuring the new rose range inspired by the gardens of Capability Brown.

Wyevale Garden Centres marketing head Justine Noades said: "We’re thrilled to be sponsors at BBC Gardeners’ World Live this year and are excited to build on a great experience in 2015. It’s a unique opportunity for us to showcase the pillars of our brand with inspiration, expertise, advise and retail, all within a live experience, at an event designed specifically with hands-on, practical gardeners in mind."

Wyevale is also to launch a David Austin rose collection linked to the garden.

Designer Alex Froggatt said the commission came through Bob Sweet, the show horticultural director.

The design features a folly with teacups overflowing with the roses within a 120sqm Brownian landscape.

Froggatt said she has 14 projects underway from her Cheshire base and is seeing a big pick up in the market this spring.
