The Queen of British baking Mary Berry will be opening this year?s Blenheim Palace Flower Show.
The three-day event is set to return to the Oxfordshire stately home from 19-21 June to showcase the very best of gardening in the UK.
Berry said: ?I?m thrilled to be opening the Blenheim Palace Flower Show as gardening is a huge passion of mine.
?I am almost as happy in a garden as I am in a kitchen. I find it very relaxing and enjoy nothing more than cooking the produce we?ve grown.
?I?m particularly looking forward to seeing the amazing floral displays from some of the country?s leading nurseries as well as being inspired by the fantastic show gardens.?
Matt Upson, director of show organiser Aztec Events, added: ?The Blenheim Palace Flower Show is going from strength to strength and in just three short years it has firmly made its mark on the horticultural calendar.
?We already have a backdrop that rivals those offered by Chelsea or Hampton Court but to have somebody who is as popular and passionate about gardening as Mary Berry to open the show, is the icing on the cake!?
