Garden designer and BBC Gardener’s World presenter, Arit Andersen, is speaking on garden design on Saturday 30 April 2022.


Head here for more 30 quality nurseries, including many Chelsea Gold Medal winners. 



We are total foodies and hand-pick all local, quality street food sellers from Devon.

Here’s to 2022!

Here we go! After the shenanigans of the last couple of years our Powderham Garden Festival is back on its established Spring date – just as the touch-paper catches on the new growing season.

There is so much to look forward to; we’re welcoming a fabulous range of nurseries, with new and familiar faces, the return of our Castle Speaker program with my good friend and fellow Gardener’s World presenter Arit, as well as music, street performers and the best food and fayre Devon has to offer.

And won’t it be lovely to be amongst friends again?

Here’s to the New Gardening year!
