Isle of Wight Spring Garden Show to return

The annual Isle of Wight Spring Garden Show is set to return in 2013 at Robin Hill Adventure Park & Gardens this April.

Taking place on Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th, the show is among the island's premier spring events and is set to attract thousands of green-fingered revellers keen to learn more about their favourite plants and to simply marvel at the wonderful displays on offer.

Visitors will also be able to receive advice on horticulture from a range of experts at the show and while exact details of the event are yet to be released, the return of this popular annual showpiece is to be applauded.

Cancelled last year due to waterlogged grounds after a prolonged period of heavy rainfall, the show returns this year and is set to be bigger and better than ever.

Back in 2012, park manager Darren Cool told the Isle of Wight County Press: "The Robin Hill team have been pulling out the stops to make the event happen in some quite dreadful conditions, but we cannot overcome such insurmountable problems such as severe water logging. Let's hope next year we get more fortunate."

It now appears likely he will be getting his wish.

Another event that could see the crowds descending on Robin Hill Adventure Park & Gardens in the near future is the annual Chinese New Year festivities that will be taking place next month.

Running from February 16th to 24th, the park is to be transformed into a spectacular display of "light, sound and colour" that is sure to delight all the family. Featuring the park's new 'Electric Woods' that will be illuminated day and night for the duration of the celebrations.

Mr Cool noted: "It will certainly give something bright and cheerful in one of the dullest months of the calendar."ADNFCR-3083-ID-801531802-ADNFCR
