TV’s gardening expert Diarmuid Gavin returns to the festival on Friday 31 July to answer all your gardening questions.

Plus don’t miss Dig’s ‘Community Gardening Day’ on Tuesday 4 August which will feature talks at 11am, 2pm and 3pm, covering horticultural tips including guerrilla gardening, seed-bomb making and how to get involved in gardening projects in your neighbourhood.
