Woodgate Garden's annual Garden Show is back, and this year aims to inspire even more budding gardeners and raise even more money for The Liz Jones Memorial Trust which supports young children around the Alysham area through various projects. Young visitors will be able to have their face painted, compete in a treasure hunt and enter a raffle to win a wheelbarrow full of goodies. There will also be craft stands and a chance to chat with garden designers, including Ian Cooper from IFC Landscapes and Ace of Spaces Garden Design.
