Despite the weather outlook garden enthusiasts and agapanthus were out in force at the Tatton Park Flower Show this year. I managed to escape with my shins intact despite a close encounter with a plastic trolley, the likes of which John Grimshaw so fondly writes. Here’s a few highlights from the show.
Begonias on display by Blackmore and Langdon.
Dahlias by Pheasant Acre Plants.
Gladioli display by Devine Nurseries.
Alstroemeria by Philip Tivey & Son.
Please do not sit on the stand. An impressive display of spikes from Lincolnshire’s Southfield Nurseries.
The path in this garden (lower right hand corner) was made from concrete fence posts.
The Most Persistent Agent Award for the show goes to Daniel Trotman who put forward a strong case to join the RSPB. They do not specify a joining fee and only ask that you give what you feel is fair. No wonder they have over a million members. Learn more on the inspirational RSPB website.
Wow, just look at this display of alliums by Warmenhoven. I had to buy some.
