The spring show, taking place from April 25 to 28, scored 86 per cent as the event most people would recommend to others and attend again themselves.
The autumn show, which runs from September 13 to 15, scored 81 per cent with Which? members, who were wowed by its giant vegetable competition and flower displays.
