South Cumbria’s annual summer horticultural celebration, The Holker Garden Festival, is this year marking its 23rd show with the attendance of ethnobotanist and TV gardening personality James Wong. James will be the festivals special guest on Saturday 30th May 2015; taking part in Q & A sessions in the Holker Garden Theatre, signing copies of his new book ‘Grow for Flavour’ and offering expert advice, and top tips to amateur gardeners and visitors.
From incredible edibles to medicinal marvels, James sees plants as much more than greenery for your garden. Trained at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and with regular appearances on BBC Gardeners’ World, BBC Countryfile, The Chelsea Flower Show, and as a panellist on BBC Radio 4 - Gardeners’ Question Time; James is a unique blend of explorer, anthropologist, gardener, and ethnobotanical adventurer.
A popular Producers’ Market held at one of Cumbria’s best loved family attractions returns next month with a festive theme and a special guest appearance from everyone’s favourite Christmas visitor.
