Hillier has announced the continuation of its partnership with the BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair for the third year in a row.

The BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair will return to the grounds of Beaulieu between 28 and 30 of April 2023, bringing a wealth of horticultural knowledge to its visitors, including expert advice from the Hillier team.

The BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair has become a key date in the calendar, packed full of inspiration, garden design ideas, and plenty of shopping opportunities. As well as this, live entertainment and advice from professionals ensure visitors have a fantastic day out.

Hillier will showcase a walk-through exhibit featuring a contemporary display and a traditional border, allowing visitors to get up close and personal with the plants.  The award-winning Hillier team will also be on hand to provide one-to-one expert advice in its plant advice stands, answering visitors’ gardening and plant queries throughout the show.

New for this year, Hillier Gardening Club members will now have the opportunity to access the Club Lounge where members can benefit from even more expert advice as well as magic moments.

“We are so pleased to be a partner of the BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair for another year,” says Chris Francis, wholesale and retail director of Hillier. “After two successful years at the fair, we are excited to showcase our next garden exhibit for 2023. We look forward to seeing customers, new and old, and sharing our expert advice and knowledge with the horticulture community.”
