A world-renowned gardening guru has been announced as the star of this year’s Shrewsbury Flower Show. David Domoney, resident gardener on ITV’s This Morning for more than 10 years and colleague of Alan Titchmarsh, will be at the two-day event, which is being held this year on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 August. David will be sharing his knowledge and passion with visitors to the Show, which sees Shrewsbury’s Quarry transformed into an ocean of flowers, music, entertainment, and culinary treats.
Andrew Cross, chair of the Shropshire Horticultural Society which organises the Show, says, “David is such a well-loved expert in his field; there really is nothing he does not know about horticulture. He will be talking about some of his experiences, as well as helping people with gardening questions.”
Motorcycling stunt troupe the Imps will provide high-adrenaline action, Scouting for Girls provide Saturday’s soundtrack, and a line-up of military bands and local choirs will also perform. Culinary expertise is being delivered by TV chef John Torode. For tickets, contact the box office on 01743 234058, visit shrewsburyflowershow.org.uk – or download the new Shrewsbury Flower Show App.
