New Look for RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2013

by Bethany Day on May 31, 2013

From 9th to 14th July the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, the UK’s biggest gardening event, will be back in its home in one of the country#s most stunning Royal Parks.

The show, which celebrates the great garden festival, has a new look for 2013 with three new zoned areas. It will offer a fun day out with its mix of garden and shopping, flowers and food, picnics and the outdoors, all set against an idyllic backdrop.

The show will be home to 34 gardens, which will demonstrate seasonally inspired plant combinations and the latest trends in garden design. They will include the unique Conceptual Gardens, which push the boundaries of what gardens can be, and High Cost Low Impact Gardens, which will inspire gree-fingered visitors with tips they can take home to improve their garden on a budget.

Some of the UK’s top nurseries will be displaying blooms of all colours and styles and the Rose Marquee will be a delight for all. Visitors will get tips for growing their own fruit and vegetables, as well as a host of shopping opportubities to buy everything from seeds and fresh produce to wellies and the latest gardening gadgets.

This year, for the first time, the show will be divided into three zones, featuring gardens, plants, food and shopping, reflecting their individual themes. Keen gardeners will love Grow, where they will find nurseries, plant stalls, potting bench demonstrations, and stands selling the very best in gardening equipment. In Escape visitors will find the Country Living Magazine Pavilion, learn how to ‘grow their own’ fruit and veg, marvel at the show’s famous roses and floristry and sample the delights of the Artisan Food Producers in the Great Tastes Marquee. In keeping with the show’s reputation for breaking boundaries in contemporary garden design, the third zone, Inspire, focuses on innovation and making the most of outside space.
