‘Romance in the Ruins’ features ancient castles, romantic tales, magical architecture and is inspired by the medieval Beeston Castle in Cheshire and features a tumbled-down walled garden inside the ruins of a castle style folly.

Wyevale has offered members double points vouchers to celebrate. The garden centre chain is also using the show to present daily expert talks.

Meanwhile, Wyevale is believed to be staying at its Syon Park headquarters after deciding against a move back to Slough.

At Gardener's World Live, which is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the BBC show, Allensmore Nurseries has suppleid bedding for a 12x6m jubilee display. Ball Colegrave has suppleid plants to Paul Stone's Nostalgia garden showing 1960s ideas.

The programme's viewers voted the rose as most influential plant of the last 50 years.
