In 2010 over 30 garden bloggers from all over the world met for the first ever UK get together at RHS Malvern Spring Show. This blog documents the lead up to that event plus the subsequent informal get togethers we've had in Malvern. There are also insights into the events of 2009, insider views from various exhibitors and personal views of Malvern and surrounding places of interest.
Thus this blog also forms a valuable resource for anyone wanting to visit either the spring or autumn versions of the show, or contemplating a visit to the area.

TCAS also have a Media Centre for further information together with current news and an archive.
* = I tried this option last year (2013) on Press Day and had an embarassing few moments at the gate explaining to the friendly staff there that the piece of card I was holding did indeed allow me free entry. This experience has been passed on to the RHS and I'll be applying to Sharon at TCS for my pass for 2014.
