Set in one of Cheshire’s Gardens of Distinction, the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park showcases promising new talent with innovative and inspirational garden designs and ideas.
The Show plays host to around 50 exquisite gardens, including those designed by finalists of the RHS National Young Designer of the Year Competition. In addition the sporting themed National Flower Bed Competition, a host of inspirational themed gardens and spectacular garden sculptures as well as a stunning Ladies Day programme make RHS Flower Show Tatton Park a must see.
The show is further complemented by the national finals of the British Florist Association competitions for under 25s in the Floral Design pavilion, the Arts & Crafts marquee, showcasing around 90 nursery trade exhibitors, and hundreds of outside trade stands and Great Taste food market.
Monty Don hosts the first of two visits to the RHS Flower Show, Tatton Park. Joined by Carol Klein, Joe Swift and Andy Sturgeon, tonight the team explores the show gardens, inviting visitors to get away from it all. Fuchsia nursery Roualeyn explains why there's a fuchsia perfect for every garden and Carol looks at the hardy plants suitable for the exposed areas of the garden.
Tonight Monty and the team celebrate the joys of growing your own fruit and vegetables. Monty takes a trip back in time to visit an allotment garden based on the World War II 'Dig for Victory' campaign. Joe Swift looks at Tatton's perennial favourites, the civic flowerbed displays, and Carol returns to her favourite place - the potting bench - to share a series of top growing tips with her fellow experts.
