Wyevale and Tesco among BBC TV Gardeners' World 50th anniversary exhibitors at GWL

To celebrate 50 years of BBC2's Gardeners' World, the TV team will be filming on the opening day of BBC Gardeners' World Live, catching up with presenters past and present, taking in the Show Gardens and Floral Marquee and enjoying the special birthday cake specially created by Nadiya Hussain.

Claudia de Yong's Wyevale Garden Centre's show garden "creates a unique space which evokes scent, romantic creativity and elements that can be recreated at home". Visitors will also be able to see Wyevale Garden Centres experts on their sponsored stage, the BBC Gardeners’ World Live Theatre, and visit Wyevale's café and shop.

This Wyevale's second garden at GWL, after their debut in 2016 with their 'Cabability Brown's Enchanged Tea Party' designed by Alexandra Froggatt and showing off the new Wyevale Capability Brown Rose collection that was launching at the time.

This is also the second time that Tesco have had a show garden at GWL - their first being in 2008. The 2017 Tesco 'Every Little Helps Garden is designed by Owen Morgan of Mosaic Gardens.

Tesco, in partnership with their supplier Intergreen will present a garden inspired by small spaces: "This is an interactive garden which will offer lots of little helps and inspire you to grow flowers and vegetables in small spaces and containers."
Morgan's ‘Health for Life Community Garden’ won best in show at BBC Gardeners’ World Live 2016.
The hour-long anniversary episode will air on BBC2 on Friday 16 June.
Paul Stone with The Nostalgia Garden and Professor David Stevens with the Anniversary Garden will celebrate the golden jubilee with commemorations of gardening from the past half century.
