Hillier unveils design for BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair

by | Feb 22, 2022 | Community, News | 0 comments

For the second year running Hillier will be headline partner of the BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair at Beaulieu in Hampshire, which takes place between 29 April and 1 May 2022.

It will be creating the Hillier Experience, which it says proved popular at the inaugural Spring Fair in 2021. This will see two gardening themes merge, offering visitors a true source of garden inspiration for ideas to take home. The garden display will highlight both a contemporary garden that displays the impact of clean lines and modern influence, and a traditional English garden.

Experts from the Hillier team will also be located around the Hillier Experience, offering tips and advice to visitors, and answering any questions they may have about their own gardens and plants. The retail section of the Hillier Experience will provide an opportunity to buy top-quality plants featured within the garden design all grown peat free and cared for by Hillier’s growers on the company’s nurseries in Hampshire.

There will also be an opportunity to purchase the newly launched Forsythia x intermedia ‘Discovery’ (John Mitchell) that has been added to the Hillier collection this year. The introduction of Forsythia x intermedia ‘Discovery’ comes following its discovery 15 years ago in the garden of John Mitchell. Propagated from just a single 15cm twig found on a Forsythia bush and nurtured by the growers at Hillier nursery in Romsey, the plant features ovate green leaves, vibrant yellow flowers and a strong supporting structure.

As headline partner of the BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair, Hillier will offer a vast array of innovation and encouragement to gardeners of all abilities. “We are looking forward to being headline partner at BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair for the second year running and to be unveiling new details about our Hillier Experience garden feature,” comments Chris Francis, wholesale and retails director of Hillier. “We have developed many displays throughout our history, but this design is a step forward for us and offers something more diverse, particularly through the contrast of contemporary and traditional themes. We are excited to showcase our Hillier Experience and to meet many gardeners over the course of the Fair, helping to impart our knowledge and inspire garden ideas.”

The BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair will take place in the beautiful open grounds of Beaulieu in Hampshire, home of the National Motor Museum and the historical Montagu Home Palace House, from Friday 29 April to Sunday 1 May 2022.
