One Show host to open garden show

Gardeners in north Wales will be able to trade tips with One Show presenter Christine Walkden at the upcoming Llangollen Gardening Show.

The event takes place on June 6th and Walkden will officially open the show in the town where she used to live, according to the Wrexham Mail.

Walkden has presented the gardening section on the One Show and has also appeared on the Paul OGrady Show and Gardeners World.

Former chairman of the Garden Writers Guild Stephen Green used to work with her in Llangollen and told the newspaper of his pleasure at Walkdens plans to attend.

"We are delighted Christine will be at the show because while she is a wonderful breath of fresh air on television she is first and foremost a real gardener," he explained.

"Thats what she brings to her TV work and to the show as well because my background is in gardening and getting people involved and thats what Christine does so well."

The One Show is presented by Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley, who recently took part in the hugely popular Strictly Come Dancing.
