Have You Missed the Chelsea Flower Show . . .?

Why not try the 22nd RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, 3rd* to 8th July 2012?

Having personally been to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show some years ago, I can fully recommend it and look forward to my next visit. The setting is awe-inspiring as you walk down the long and impressive drive-way towards the fascinating castle, steeped in history, and most famously the past dwelling of Henry VIII and many a wife!

With over 60 acres of the Palace gardens, which run down to the River Thames, the flower show boasts to be the world’s largest annual flower show. From my experience, what I enjoyed the most was the knowledge, helpfulness and inspiration I gained whilst wandering around the various stalls and displays. I went away at the end of the day feeling like I could go home and totally transform my garden, making it a much more enjoyable space! One of the great things about the flower show is that there is something for everyone, so it doesn’t matter what your taste is in flowers and gardens, whether you’re interested in the new Romance and Roses marquee, the conceptual gardens or the urban oasis, but to name a few, you should be able to find the show interesting and inspirational, with each year bringing something new and updated.

Some of the new features this year include;
Low cost/high impact gardens show
World of Gardens
Community Gardening

On a personal note, I do suggest comfortable footware as there is a lot to see and do, and I’m sure you will enjoy the show as much as my mum and I did!

*3rd and 4th July, RHS members only. 5th to 8th July, RHS members and non-members.
