Former BBC Three Counties Radio presenter Peter Mills has taken charge of the long-standing show held at Loseley Park near Guildford in Surrey.
Mills said: "We have kicked out all the fluffy toys and things that were diluting the event and have taken it back to a proper outdoor living and gardening show. We have more than 40 paid up exhibitors now and we are aiming for 80 or more."
The event takes place on 18-20 June, the same weekend as Gardeners World Live, but Mills is confident they can attract as many as 15,000 visitors and said there is room for more show gardens beyond the eight already booked.
Celebrity gardeners Chris Collins and Pippa Greenwood will be on hand to judge the local schools' wheelbarrow competition and they will be joined by the HTA and National Gardens Scheme.
Kew's Tony Kirkham heads up a programme of talks for experienced and amateur gardeners in the Theatre Marquee.
