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.

Updated List of Who's Coming...

Here's the latest list of who's coming so you can check the information I currently have about your attendance and do let me know of anything I've got wrong. See yesterday's post for our events programme.

It's particularly important if those of you I've listed as provisional attendees for something will get in touch ASAP via malvernmeet at gmail dot com and let me know whether or not you are coming. This is because I need to give the Malvern show people an updated list so they can make sure they've issued everyone with their pass to our Bloggers' Meet area. Helen also needs to confirm final numbers to the pub and Ask meal social events and to make sure she can fit you all into her house of Friday evening.

I'll put a link to this post in the sidebar under Malvern Links so you can find it again more easily. This is the version I'll keep updated. If you don't know any of your fellow attendees already, you'll find a link to their blog in the sidebar under the Attendees List. I've also listed those people attending as a friend or family member alongside each blogger as appropriate.

If you want to get a better idea of the people attending the same time as you, then the Doodle link on this post will help you to do that.

Can't wait to meet everyone! It will be talking nonstop from start to finish. Bring throat lozenges, something we learned from Austin and Chicago. :-)

Many thanks to you both.
