The show will grow on - Kings Heath Garden Show
It's almost as changeable as the weather as to what is happening with Birmingham's Annual Gardening Show. Following an announcement earlier this year that the event would return to Kings Heath Park following the move to the City Centre as part of Artsfest in 2011 it was recently announced that the event had been called off due to recent weather causing Kings Heath park to be waterlogged.
A gardening show has been held in Kings Heath for about 30 years, but last year it was cancelled by Birmingham City Council because of costs and declining visitor numbers.
Kings Heath groups petitioned the council to get the event reinstated in the park and it led to the organisations receiving a council grant of £20,000 to run the show themselves.
The event taking place on 1 and 2 September will now take place at Bordesley Green Allotments following residents, societies and businesses joining forces to rescue the event.
