The annual floral extravaganza that is the RHS Flower Show returns to Tatton Park next week with a packed schedule for gardening fans. The event takes place across a huge outdoor site inside the beautiful surroundings of Cheshire’s 1,000-acre deer park.
The Royal Horticultural Society show opens on Wednesday, July 20, for RHS members, before opening fully to the public from July 21 – July 24. There will be the return of the stunning show gardens, floral marquees, back-to-back gardens, and scores of retail stalls to provide gardeners with the ultimate inspiration across the showground.
Themes this year include “gardens of resilience,” which designers have interpreted in several ways in the show gardens, which will compete to win the prestigious gold RHS medals at the event. Reflecting on the past two years of pandemics and lockdowns, it will include a “working from home” garden, a “Covid recovery garden,” and the “Why Commute?” garden.
Themes that will run throughout the show include greener gardening for all – encouraging sustainable solutions for the garden. The Pocket Planting feature promotes using the right plants in the right place with inspiration for common soil types and conditions found throughout the North West, while the RHS and BBC Local Radio Planet Friendly Gardens are full of ideas from water conservation to meadow planting.
