My Press Pass arrived today and I've been looking forward to attending this event again as I have been attending since 2014 and I always enjoy the day and meeting up with other bloggers who are regarded as freelance gardening journalist and the occasional celebrity gardener, professional gardening journalist and authors.
It's nice to see the regular exhibitors and to find out what's new for the coming growing season and then each year there are the new companies and new products that are coming to those that garden.
Each year there is an area dedicated to featuring new products when those attending have the chance to vote for their favourite.
These highly sought after trophies are awarded to the best new product that those attending feel stands out from the rest.
All proceeds from this initiative are donated to Greenfingers, a national charity creating magical gardens in children’s hospices up and down the country.
The GIMA are delighted to continue to support this charity and they are very proud that The Garden Press Event has raised over £15,000 for this charity in the 15 years it’s been in existence.
