June 30 – July 5
2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show; the world’s largest of its kind. The magnificent setting of Hampton Court Palace is the sumptuous backdrop for this spectacular event which will be celebrating its anniversary with lots of themed events, including silver anniversary floristry, historic gardens and scarecrows celebrating the past.
Packed with ideas on how to grow your own, nurture the environment and make the most of your garden, the show combines quality, innovation and creativity, featuring spectacular show gardens and horticultural exhibitors.
The show has three themed zones designed to help visitors find their way around, with gardens and plants reflecting the themes of Grow, Feast and Inspire.
In the Grow zone, keen gardeners will be able to see award winning nurseries, get advice from the experts and get ideas for inspirational planting schemes and growing styles.
As you would expect, the Feast zone will inspire you to grow your own but you will also be able to sample a wonderful selection of fine foods and fresh produce to help you decide what to grow.
The Inspire zone will do just that, encouraging visitors to re-think their preconceptions of garden design with ideas to push boundaries and champion innovation. A stunning selection of show gardens will leave visitors brimming with enthusiasm, and a pavilion selling stylish products from artists and craftspeople may prove tempting.
