MEMBER of Parliament for Clwyd South, Simon Baynes, has encouraged local gardening enthusiasts in Clwyd South to take part in the Great British Garden Festival 2022.

The Great British Garden Festival 2022 is a yearlong event and is an opportunity to showcase the very best of gardening in the UK.

The Festival is encouraging florists, garden centres, on-line retailers and local hospitality to name a few, to get involved and help attract more business to the local area.

The Great British Garden Festival will join up all that is great about the country with the focus on gardens and horticulture, landscaping and regeneration and is an opportunity to bring together local businesses and members together.

To become a member for the duration of 2022, this will cost £10 and members will gain access to discounts on events and products from participating partners across the UK.

Partners of the Festival already include garden centres, online retailers, historic houses and service providers. They offer a 10% discount to Members of the Festival. The aim is simply to make it self-financing and increase awareness.

Simon Baynes MP said: “I would encourage Clwyd South constituents and businesses to get involved with The Great British Garden Festival 2022, as this is a great opportunity to showcase what we have here in Clwyd South and also to bring all of these things together in one campaign. This is a cause close to my heart given not only my own interest in gardening but also my previous role as Chairman of the Welsh Historic Gardens Trust.

“The Festival is a great opportunity to encourage members across the UK to Clwyd South and highlight our wonderful area. If you’re interested in signing up to become a partner and to find out more, please visit The Great British Garden Festival website at”
