Manchester Flower Show returns this summer, and festival organisers have issued an open call to professional and amateur gardeners alike.

Budding florists and landscapers are invited to help shape the floral extravaganza set to take over the city centre from Thu 2 Jun – Sun 5 Jun. Opportunities are also available for flower, plant, produce, artwork and ceramics traders at the festival’s Flower Market.

Participation is free with no cost for using the spaces allocated, although displays are required to be self-funded, and can either be a garden or large display or a smaller more bijou container garden.

Since its beginnings in 1955, the celebration has evolved into a more urban affair, bringing welcome greenery and floral trails to the city’s streets, along with al fresco dining, festive cocktails and afternoon teas.

Local businesses and offices in the city centre are also being encouraged to show their support by giving their shop fronts and offices a green makeover.
