In September, 2018, BBC Gardeners' World Magazine readers joined us for an exclusive event day at the beautiful Bowood House and Gardens. Guests enjoyed a Bulb Masterclass from Adam Frost, a garden tour and a two-course lunch. Here are a selection of photographs from the day, and some thoughts from the guests…

"Had to write to say Thank You to all the gardeners' world team who hosted this event , I had a fab day and birthday money well spent.
Adam was such a lovely man ,very down to earth and fitted into group perfectly with nothing being to much trouble. It would have been lovely to listen to him longer. Look forward to his next talk."

"My partner and I have just spent a most enjoyable day at Bowood house. The whole day was really well organised and timed to perfection. Adam Frost had the audience eating out of his hand. He is an excellent and most entertaining speaker. The staff at Bowood house deserve a mention, too. We were charmingly welcomed on arrival at the gate, the catering was excellent at lunchtime, and the facilities were the cleanest possible. The icing on the cake was the Goody bag. Perfect. Many thanks for a lovely day out."

"The event at Bowood yesterday was brilliant! Amazing location, brilliant talks from Adam Frost and a real treat to go inside the walled gardens. Thank you - no need to improve it, just more of the same! Oh - and the team from the magazine were all super lovely too. Shame it’s raining and I have to work as I just want to be outside in my garden now - still I shall be ordering bulbs while eating the florentines that I only just discovered in the goody bag (lovely goody bag BTW) so I can’t complain!"
