Southport Flower Show
17th August @ 10:00 am - 20th August @ 6:00 pm£24.00
Southport Flower Show is the largest independent flower show in the country, attracting over 50,000 visitors across 4 days. Set to be bigger and better than ever before, we’re delighted to announce this year’s theme as – ‘The Curious Garden’.
Arguably the most popular attraction at the show, over 92% of our visitors make a point to visit the Show Gardens.
Led by the show theme each year, these incredible gardens are constructed by Garden Designers and Landscapers in just under two weeks. Inspired by the show’s annual theme, this year our exhibitors go head-to-head to create the most Curious Garden and impress our judges.
Whether you are looking for inspiration, ideas or the professionals who will do the right job – you will leave our breath-taking Show Gardens excited to transform your own.
One of the show’s highlights is the spectacular Grand Floral Marquee. It’s a treasure trove of quality plants and flowers, trees and shrubs, bonsai, cacti, vegetables and herbs. Visit the Grand Floral Marquee to look, see and smell not only superior quality specimens, but also some of the more unusual plant varieties before you buy and, just importantly, get on the spot advice from the people who actually grew the plants.
Prepare to be bee-wildered by the bee-keepers in our Honey Marquee, who will give you a live demonstration of the honeybees performing their amazing “Waggle Dance”.
Once you have watched the curious work done by these amazing creatures, treat yourself to their spoils! With a selection of honey and beeswax on sale from local bee-keepers, you will be able to sample and take home their gorgeous preserves.
There are a number of places to ask questions and get advice. The new Celebrity Theatre located in the Grand Floral Marquee, Plant and Garden Societies in the Amateur Growers’ Marquee, the Bees and Honey Marquee and from specialist growers in the Grand Floral Marquee.
