The Garden Village at Balmoral Show provides a dedicated area for green fingered enthusiasts and is set to provide more spectacle with the exciting addition of an edible garden. There will be a polytunnel erected and filled with edible produce providing a visually interesting and informative display for the general public. In keeping with the NI Year of Food and Drink, Show goers will be able to see the food they have on their plate growing in the ground, bridging the gap between farm and fork.
We are delighted to announce that Westland Horticulture is sponsoring the Garden Village for the 2016 Show. With extensive knowledge in horticulture and firm local roots, Westland Horticulture is the perfect fit for the Balmoral Show and especially our new edible garden feature.
Keith Nicholson, Marketing Director for Westland Horticulture said: "Westland was founded 25 years ago in Northern Ireland and since then we've become one of the biggest garden manufacturers in the UK and Ireland.
We're delighted to be pledging our support to the Balmoral Show. This year's theme, the Year of Food and Drink fits really well with our brands, Gro-Sure and Unwins and Marshalls Seeds. It's our aim to get more people growing and enjoying their own home-grown produce."
Come along to the Balmoral Show to see not only the Garden Village but the usual components of fun, food and farming excellence from 11th-13th May.
