National Plant Show announces exhibitor and delegate lists

The UK's biggest plant fair, the National Plant Show, will hold its inaugural event on 29-30 June, confident that despite garden product show Garden Expo, which was to debut alongside, being cancelled.

The National Plant Show has received visitor registrations from 135 businesses and has booked 83 companies and 101 stands - with more to be confirmed.

The HTA-organised show is to extend into a second hall at Stoneleigh. The demise of Expo, which did not attract enough exhibitors to run alongside the plant show, has left hall two at Stoneleigh vacant.

Registered delegates include:

  • Abercorn Plant and Garden Centre
  • Aylett Nurseries
  • Beckworth Emporium
  • Bents Garden & Home
  • Buckingham Garden Centre
  • Stewarts Gardenlands
  • Millbrook Garden Company
  • Hillier Landscapes
  • Joseph Rochford Gardens
  • Grosvenor Garden Centre
  • Garden & Leisure Group


HTA PR manager Gill Ormrod said: "Hall one is full so we're extending into a second hall. We  were originally looking at a marquee but with Garden Expo not happening in hall two there is extra space."

"This is a great opportunity to look at whole UK plant supply chain under one roof."

Provar will be co-sponsor of a national plant award with a linked new plant display "a big focus".

HTA business development director Tim Briercliffe said: "The original thinking behind the National Plant Show was that it was a show in its own right. Garden Expo came along later so the initial premise of a single plant show still stands. I genuinely think numbers will not be affected [by Expo not happening]. No-one has dropped out and visitor registrations are looking good."

Latest exhibitors to sign up are: David G Ross, Newington Nurseries and John Train Plants.
