Out Of Office: We’re at Tatton Flower Show!Published on 22nd July 2014
Nothing typifies the Great British summer time more than a good flower show, and they don’t come much better than this year’s RHS Tatton Park. Set in the grounds of one of the UK’s most historic and beautiful estates, the show is a spectacular meld of our favourite pursuits; inspirational design, skilled plantsmanship, first-class food and honest-to-goodness shopping!
With gorgeous floral displays, gardens from some of the country’s most talented young designers, the latest green-fingered innovations and the best grow-your-own advice to be found, the 2014 Tatton Park Flower Show is a real horticultural haven and an unsurprising success.
From blossoms and blooms to the fine fronds of our Fernatix friends, the floral marquee was the place to be for all enthusiastic gardeners, while the Tatton Brasserie, Garden Lounge and food courts expanded many a waist-line.
The RHS Tatton Park Flower Show is an unavoidable herald that summer is already half way through, but we won’t hold that against it; we’ll be having a marvellous time today and we’ll be sure to let you know how we got on and take plenty of pictures. With August spread out before us like an enticing Smörgåsbord, and an awesome autumn just around the corner, Tatton should, as ever, deliver the inspiration we need to make the most of those Apropos Extensions and Glasshouses – so get out into your gardens, your greenhouses or conservatories and, even if the rain begins, enjoy the very best of British.
