The award-winning Edible Garden Show will leave Stoneleigh Park and put down new roots at London’s Alexandra Palace in March 2014.
“Grow-your-own enthusiasts come from all walks of life and many of them are enjoying their slice of the good life from urban gardens and tiny spaces,” Debbie Smith, a director of the show, said.
“We have decided to move to London for 2014 to bring the event to a new audience. Alexandra Palace will be a great home for the show in 2014 with good transport links, 1,500 free car parking spaces and
a huge exhibition space. We will be hoping to increase both our exhibitor and visitor numbers.”
Latest government figures show that 5 per cent of all our food is now grown at home, and not just on allotments or vegetable patches in the garden. Tasty crops are being nurtured on patios, balconies, window boxes and even front doorsteps by families wanting to save money and lead a healthier lifestyle.
