The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are to visit The Edible Garden Show when it opens at London’s Alexandra Palace on Friday, March 28.

The UK’s only national gardening event dedicated exclusively to ‘Grow Your Own’ fruit and vegetables was launched in 2011 to meet the phenomenal public demand for information on home-grown produce and healthy eating. Gardening experts and innovative exhibitors provide invaluable advice on all aspects of growing from the latest gadgets for your garden or allotment, to organic growing and sustainability.

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will tour the exhibition and also meet young people who have been taking part in a national schools’ initiative to design a ‘dream edible garden’.

As a keen gardener and farmer himself, The Prince runs the Mygrove competition, a site which has been specially designed for school children to share the fun of growing their own fruit and vegetables, where they have the chance to win a visit to The Prince’s sustainably run garden at Highgrove.

The Edible Garden Show is staged over three days from March 28-30 with experts including botanist and award-winning TV presenter James Wong, the BBC’s One Show gardening guru Christine Walkden, the ever popular TV and radio presenter Pippa Greenwood and former Blue Peter gardener Chris Collins. There will also be a show garden by The Horticultural Channel
