Welcome to the Knowsley Flower Show website, we hope you enjoy visiting the site and that you find the information that you require.

A very warm welcome to all our exhibitors in this, the 18th year of the Knowsley Flower Show. Without the support of our loyal exhibitors the wonderful displays of owers and vegetables would not be there for visitors to admire, and wish that they could achieve that standard of excellence.

2016 is The Year of the English Garden, and that is the theme of this yearís show. It is a celebration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of Capability Brown, a landscape gardener who revolutionised the design of English gardens. Obviously, through the centuries, garden styles have changed but the quintessential English gardens he created still exist. I hope entering the marquee will be like stepping into the past, full of colour and scent evoking English gardens past and present.

As well as our regular exhibitors we welcome new ones, and we have Novice classes where they can compete knowing that they can ask for help and advice. Vases for owers, and plates for vegetables are provided for the Novice Section. If you would like more information then please get in touch with me, my contact details are below.

Good luck to all and good gardening.

We are delighted that the Knowsley Feelgood Festival will take place the day before our show on Saturday 6th August from 1-5pm on the Gladstone eld of Court Hey so we look forward to also welcoming families to what promises to be an exciting event!
