EdibleGardenShowThe Edible Garden Show is putting down new roots at London’s Alexandra Palace in March 2014 in a move to bring the popular show to new audiences around the country.

The show, which has been hosted by Stoneleigh Park since its inception, will move to the north London venue and take place from March 28-30, 2014.

Debbie Smith, a director of The Edible Garden Show, said: “Our visitors at Stoneleigh have come from all over the UK from the south coast, Devon and Cornwall to the Home Counties, Midlands, Wales, the north and Scotland. We even have some people travelling from Northern Ireland and overseas.

“Grow-your-own enthusiasts come from all walks of life and many of them are enjoying their slice of the good life from urban gardens and tiny spaces. We have decided to move to London for 2014 to bring the show to a new audience, as well as welcoming our regular visitors to a different venue and experience. Alexandra Palace will be a great home for the event in 2014 with good transport links, 1,500 free car parking spaces and a huge exhibition space. We will be hoping to increase both our exhibitor and visitor numbers.”

Scheduled for the beginning of the growing season, The Edible Garden Show showcases innovative products, top exhibitors, home-grown produce, food, livestock and a celebrity line-up of experts.

The Edible Garden Show was launched in response to the grow-your-own revolution sweeping the country as more and more people are digging for the dinner plate. Latest government figures show that five per cent of all our food is now grown at home and not just on allotments or vegetable patches in the garden.
