Brilliant sunshine and blue skies have drawn the crowds today to the Tavistock Country Garden Show.

The show was declared open at 10am with Paul Ward, deputy town mayor, cutting a ribbon over the market entrance with, appropriately, a pair of garden shears.

The show runs today and tomorrow, May 28 and 29, from 10am-4pm in and around Tavistock Pannier Market.

It is a brilliant opportunity to stock up on plants for a summer in the garden - from vegetable plugs to fully grown shrubs and bedding plants.

The aisles of the covered market were already buzzing mid-morning as people crowded around the stalls to make their purchases.
