Looking ahead to the Four Oaks Trade Show

Our preview of the horticulture industry's biggest and most diverse exhibition features details of the plants, products, services and exhibitors at this year's show.

Professionals from all corners of the horticulture industry - both the UK and overseas - will be heading to the Four Oaks Trade Show in just over two weeks' time.

  • Follow the latest news and updates from the show in Horticulture Week's Four Oaks LiveBlog.

The show, which is now in its 46th year, remains by a considerable margin the largest and most diverse industry exhibition in the UK horticulture calender. It will take place in Cheshire's Lower Withington on Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 September at the 9.3ha Four Oaks nursery site.

See our Four Oaks Trade Show page for information about machinery launches, plant ranges and exhibitor information.

As official media partner to the show, which remains the most comprehensive event in the UK for everyone involved in the garden industry, Horticulture Week looks forward to offering you a warm welcome to our stand - E45, situated in Hall E.

Horticulture Week will once again be hosting the Four Oaks Trade Show Awards this year - a real highlight of the two days that are always packed with new plant, product and professional service launches to tempt industry buyers.

You can check out all the new plants and products entered into this year's awards in the new plants and products display area during your trip around the showground.

The award winners will be announced at an exhibitors' reception immediately after the close of business on the first day of the show (Tuesday 6 September).

Leading our expert judging panel will be Horticulture Week technical editor Sally Drury, while HW editor Kate Lowe will present the awards at the event. We look forward to seeing you there.
