THE 2011 Holker Garden Festival is set to be the biggest and best yet!

The festival attracted more than 23,000 visitors last year, making it one of the most popular summer events.

Set in the grounds of Holker Hall & Gardens in Cumbria, the annual festival is a celebration of gardens, countryside, food and crafts.

The three day event will take place from June 3 to 5, with BBC Gardener’s World presenter Carol Klein already confirmed as this years’ special guest, returning for a second year having been extremely popular with visitors in 2010.

The prize for the winning show garden at Holker is always hotly contended and with more show gardens than ever before, there will no doubt be some beautiful creations in the running for the Best Festival Show Garden Award.
