BBC Gardeners World Live 2023
A page of information from this years excellent BBC GWL held at the NEC Birmingham 16th - 18th June 2023.
The sun shone and so did the quality of all the gardens.

APL at BBCGWL 2023
Each year The Association of Professional Landscapers have a stand at the show. Most times we are simply promoting the members that are at the show itself.
This year we decided to do something different.
APL Garden Design Clinic
We invited members of the public to attend the Garden and Design Clinic each day of the show.
We were not sure how popular this would be, but we were shocked to see how many people turned up to the show with pictures, plans, problems and requests.
Our team of experts each day were inundated with topics of heavy soils, long narrow gardens and slopes.
It was fascinating to hear what people were doing and immensely enjoyable to be able to help.
A big thank you to all that supported us on the stand.
