Celebrity gardener Alan Titchmarsh will officially open the Blenheim Palace Flower Show 2017, taking place this June.

Alan, who rose to fame as the main presenter of Gardeners’ World and has written over 50 gardening books, will welcome visitors when the show makes its return to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on Friday 23rd, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June.

Alan said: “I’m delighted to be invited to open Blenheim Palace Flower Show. Set in the wonderful grounds of the historic Blenheim Palace estate, this show has established itself as a highly popular event in the garden show season. 

“It’s an event that isn’t only about flowers but has lots of great ideas for equipment and new gadgets to help you in the garden, and it is staged in the most amazing location.”
