Harrowgate Flower Show, EnglandThe autumn show at Harrowgate takes place September 15 through 17, 2017, in the Regional Agricultural Centre, Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England.

The show is open from 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. (Sunday, until 4:30 p.m.). The last admissions are allowed at 4:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, at 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

Here’s how the organizers describe it:

Featuring fantastic ideas for your garden, stunning plant nursery displays, live expert demonstrations and great shopping, it offers everything you need to plan and perfect your outdoor space.

Our famous giant vegetable competition is set to wow visitors as colossal carrots, monster marrows and podgy parsnips weigh in for the battle of the bulge.

Take home lots of practical ideas and inspiration from our street scene gardens, and don’t miss the chance to admire our great ‘message in a garden’ Community Spirit plots.

The Floral Pavilion hosts one of the most spectacular sights in Britain, with the country’s biggest exhibition by specialist gardening groups. Soak up the atmosphere among over 5,000 fabulous autumn blooms, where colors and scents combine to create an unforgettable experience.

Autumn is traditionally a time to reap the rewards of all the hard work in the fruit and veg garden, and top chefs in the Feast! Cookery Theatre will have lots of ideas for transforming home grown produce into super meals for all the family.

Our popular How2 demonstrations will be back with advice and practical guides on a whole range of gardening techniques. Those looking for top tips for growing produce at home can join the Kitchen Garden Live team for talks every day of the show. For help and advice with tricky ornamental plant problems, make sure you visit the Dig It Garden Theatre in our new Plant Pavilion, or the Garden Advice Bureau for one to one advice.

Whew! All that means, Road Trips Gardeners, is that even though Americans can’t buy plants or flowers or seeds and bring them back across the pond, we will be able to come home filled with ideas and inspiration (and maybe a garden tchotchke or two).

The Harrogate Flower Shows are organized by the North of England Horticultural Society. All profits from the shows are returned to the charity and used to promote gardening and horticulture in the North of England.
