Who’s speaking at our Powderham festival in 2018?

Coming up in April at Powderham Castle, we’re bringing you the cream of BBC gardening. As always, free for all ticket holders, we have Rachel de Thame, presenter on BBC Gardeners’ World since 1999 and allotment doctor, Terry Walton, from BBC Radio Two’s Jeremy Vine Show.

Rachel, whose design projects include the floral decorations for the Royal Barge which conveyed HM The Queen during the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant in 2012, tops the speakers’ bill on Friday 27th April while organic gardener and author Terry has been allotment-growing for more than fifty years and will be sharing his knowledge of growing fruit and veg on Saturday 28th April.
