Garden Hub

Located a little bit further afield is the Garden Hub, a green oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of the show. This hub is headlined by Alan Titchmarsh and curated by Adam Scott with Jamie Butterworth of Form Plants.

Twice a day, Alan will be taking to the stage at the talks-theatre inside this hub, together with a horticultural expert of the Windsor Crown Estate. They will be conversing about various seasonal gardening conundrums and relevant topics like future-proofing your garden for the changing climate.

Whilst listening to our special guests and enjoying the gorgeous green surroundings, visitors will also be able to sample botanical delights at the Garden Hub’s bar and enjoy lounging amongst the plants on outdoor furniture provided by the Garden Furniture Centre.  Plus SoGood Sake will be providing free of charge taster sessions for their Californian take on this popular drink.

The stunning plant display in this Hub has been provided by Form Plants Ltd, a local plant nursery run by Jamie Butterworth. Jamie is an RHS Ambassador, nurseryman and gardener. With over 10 years of experience in the industry, Jamie’s passion for plants is infectious and can be seen on BBC Gardeners World where Jamie co-presented an episode last autumn. Jamie started his horticultural journey at RHS Garden Wisley and became the most awarded designer of a single garden with his Wedgwood Garden at the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show in 2019. Continuing his success, he won gold at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival (2021) and the RHS Chelsea Flower Show (2022). In recent years, his nursery Form Plants Ltd, has supplied trees, hedging, topiaries and shrubs to nine gold medal-winning RHS Chelsea Flower Show gardens.

Visitors can browse the beautiful display of plants (which are also available to purchase), and chat with the knowledgeable Form Plants team on hand to ask for advice on gardening and plant questions.

Another part of the gardening hub will be the displays and retail space prepared by the team at the Royal Gardens Windsor Castle, led by Gardens Manager Adam Scott. They will be showcasing plants used in Royal functions and state visits, grown within the Royal Nursery which is a stone’s throw within the castle estate from the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Go and visit them in the Garden Hub’s retail space for the chance to purchase plants grown in the glasshouses at Windsor, including some used in displays around the showground and hospitality areas. There will also be a range of Royal Gardens horticultural tools and gifts which are both functional and would look proud in any greenhouse or potting shenjoy the restful space of the Garden Hub with its own garden planted by Windsor Castle’s Head Gardener, Adam Scott. As visitors browse the beautiful planting, they can also enjoy a refreshing drink from The Garden Gin Bar and Café. Gardeners and plants men and women will be on hand to answer questions. At 11.30am and 2pm Alan Titchmarsh will be talking about his long career in garden design and will be welcoming special guests from the Royal Household’s gardening team and other celebrated local gardeners.
