Well I'm from Brighton and me and mum get up fairly early, say 7, car by 7:45 and there by 11:30, then leave around 6 and we seem to get everything done. Not quite sure where you are (sorry never heard of your place ) , but it may be worth it, but bare in kind all of the hotels are expensive! Yes show gardens are there on the last day, and there's talks about the show gardens too. Also, go and see someone live from the gardeners world team, last year I saw monty don, year before carol klein (and also got my book signed by her!!! ) and year before joe swift, this year, dairmuid gavin. Not going to lie, it's very busy and it can get a bit ugly, but none of my things have ever got damaged, we bought these cute little fold away trolley things for £12 I think it was and they're brill, everyone has them.
