In less than two weeks, the 51st edition of the Four Oaks Trade Show will take place, and it is known as one of the UK's leading international exhibitions for the whole of commercial horticulture. From production to point-of-sale, the breadth of exhibits on display is the show's strength, attracting a broad visitor base. The event takes place on a 23-acre nursery site in Cheshire, UK, close to the Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope, covering an area of 13,000m² under glass with additional outdoor areas.
Last year, they celebrated their 50th anniversary with 320+ exhibitors. And this year, the organization says that it will be bigger and better. "An extensive range of exhibitors from around the world, even more informative content, and extra highlights on new plants and products make a visit essential to all in the sector."
Massive displays of plant material form the heart of the show, with young plant producers using the platform to launch the next season's lines. Mature stock and specimen plants from across Europe create magnificent showcase displays. Machinery, growing media, sundries, retail products, Christmas trees, and merchandise, services, and practically everything the sector can use or re-sell is found on the aisles at Four Oaks. More than 35% of participating companies are from overseas.
The visitor profile includes buyers from grower retailers, independent garden centers, garden center chains, commercial growers, multiple retailers, wholesalers, mail order, online retailers, landscapers, landscape architects, garden designers, professional gardeners, groundsmen, farm shops, local authorities, and florists.
