Gardeners rejoice as the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show gets underway in London, with six days of all things horticultural.
Hampton Court Palace Flower Show is the world's largest annual flower show. As well as the stunning floral displays, you can learn about growing your own fruit and vegetables, get tips on gardening in a changing climate, and shop for garden products.
This RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) spectacle is the largest of its kind in the world and, for six days in July, thousands of gardening fans can see, smell and touch an abundance of floral delights. You can enjoy around 50 inspiring display gardens including the tranquil water gardens (a unique category of this show), the rose marquee and the innovative conceptual gardens showcasing the next big names in garden design.
For the keen horticulturist the show is not just about viewing, shopping and relaxing – it's also about winning! The RHS judges make their awards on the first day of the show; see if you agree with their choices.
Hundreds of the UK's best nurseries fill the floral marquees, Festival of Roses and Plant Heritage Marquee. Floral art, fruit, vegetables and floristry are also a major part of the show.
With lots of opportunities to buy gifts and gadgets and several tempting catering options, everyone will have a glorious day out at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
