Show Gardens

Dig the City is back with more fabulous, floral show gardens than ever before.

With a pop-up meadow on wheels from horticultural institution Kew Gardens, an erupting garden bursting from cracks in Manchester’s pavements, a garden of the future using hydroponics – and a vision of vertical growing by Incredible Edible.

Winners of last year’s ‘Best in Show’ Hulme Community Garden Centre return with a spectacular display which will transform the steps from New Cathedral Street to Cateaton Street into a mountain stream. Plus there’s the Bridgewater Hall Performance Show Garden, a pop-up orchard from the Moss Cider Project and the IWM North’s Dig for Victory Garden alongside digital gardens, textile gardens and much more.
