Toby’s Garden Festival

May 3 - May 5

Toby’s Garden Fest is back at Powderham! They will be exhibitors bringing jewellery, art, fabrics and delicious foods along with the biggest range of trees, flowers and edibles.

Hosted by BBC Two Gardeners’ World presenter Toby Buckland, Toby’s Garden Festival (Friday 3rd – Saturday 4th May 2024) is proud to announce it has been awarded carbon-neutral status.   Set in the stunning grounds of Powderham Castle, near Exeter, it’s the first carbon-neutral garden show in the world to achieve such accreditation, a huge achievement for the festival which also celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.

Two days of delight, celebration and inspiration for gardeners and lovers of the great outdoors, Toby and his dedicated team have worked hard to reduce the impact of the festival on the environment.   Over the past 10 years they’ve sourced from local sustainable suppliers but knew there was more to do, so, with the help of eco-auditors, Blue Marble, they monitored the carbon the festival produces and have offset it by planting trees as part of a wildlife protection scheme.

Family-friendly, Toby’s Garden Festival boasts an impressive programme full of free gardening and food and drink talks, demonstrations, tastings and workshops plus live music.  Much more than purely a garden festival it’s an unmissable two days, with over 200 exhibitors including award-winning RHS Chelsea Flower Show plant nurseries and British-grown trees, roses, border and wildflowers, aquatics, shrubs and houseplants plus sculptures and garden furniture and an ‘Artisan Barn’ showcasing local artists, crafts, ceramics, textiles, glassware and jewellery.  Heritage craft demonstrations including stave baskets and brush making and free flower crown-making workshops with the help of the British Academy of Flower Arts, also run over the two days.
