Mary Berry to open Blenheim Flower Show

Date Posted: 13/01/2015

The queen of British baking will indulge her second love – gardening – at the annual event between 19th and 21st June.

Mary Berry will be cutting the ribbon on the show, where the highlights include a 25,000 foot Grand Floral Marquee featuring more than 40 floral displays, and a selection of show gardens created by some of the UK’s top landscape gardeners.

Mary said: “I'm thrilled to be opening the Blenheim Palace Flower Show as gardening is a huge passion of mine. I am almost as happy in a garden as I am in a kitchen.

I find it very relaxing and enjoy nothing more than cooking the produce we've grown. I'm particularly looking forward to seeing the amazing floral displays from some of the country's leading nurseries as well as being inspired by the fantastic show gardens.”

Matt Upson, director of show organiser Aztec Events, said: “The Blenheim Palace Flower Show is going from strength to strength and in just three short years it has firmly made its mark on the horticultural calendar.

We already have a backdrop that rivals those offered by Chelsea or Hampton Court but to have somebody who is as popular and passionate about gardening as Mary Berry to open the show, is the icing on the cake!”
