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.

Can We Tempt You?

James has not only kindly mentioned Meet @ Malvern in his latest post, he's also divulged some news of what's happening this year:

The exact plan is still under review but hopefully quite a few of you will get there: I am there, as usual on every day but the exciting news (if you are easily influenced) is that Joe Swift and Cleve West are also there on Friday and Saturday so we will be doing the first ever Three Men Went To Mow - Live. [this news alone will be sufficient to get many of us quivering with anticipation - Ed]

Again we are unsure what we will do but it should be jolly. On Sunday, Joe and I will be Cleveless. For those of keener on gazing upon the perfectly formed torso of Chris Beardshaw* he will be in attendance on the Thursday. Also available will be the effervescent Katie Johnson** to keep us in order and the ever knowledgeable Reg Moule** to answer those horticultural questions that leave us stumped.

There will be Acrobats as well [the show has a circus theme this year].

* = This will be for the judging of the Chris Beardshaw design mentorship bursary - more on this in a later post

** = these will be familiar faces to previous attendees who've gone to events in the Design Theatre. They're the people who hand the microphones round for audience questions and join in with all the banter

I'll keep you updated on what's happening as soon as I have any more news :)

Tempted? Then do come and join us!
