HARTLEPOOL Horticultural Show bursts into flower at the Headland’s Borough Hall this weekend.
There are more than 110 categories this year, including children’s sections such as best miniature garden on a plate and best fruit or vegetable man or model.
To whet your appetite for this highlight of the gardening calendar here’s some pictures from past shows.
