A feast of floristry
Floristry is an important element to all RHS shows and the designs never fail to amaze visitors.
If you love floristry, the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park was the place to be. Our range of floral-themed events and competitions was increased this year to provide a bumper crop of delightful displays to enjoy.
In the RHS Floral Marquee, visitors could browse the colourful designs from 86 exhibitors from across the UK.
At the Floral Design Studio, the British Floristry Association, headed by Dennis van Wonderen, hosted professional floristry competitions throughout the week. New this year was the Floristry College Competition with the theme of ‘Flights of Fancy’. There was also innovative displays from members of the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS).
- Plant Plaza: plant sellers with creative displays offering visitors the opportunity to buy their favourites
- RHS Summer Fruit & Vegetable Competition Pavilion: The Pavilion that houses the best of Grow Your Own along with specialist fruit and herb exhibitors.
- Horticultural Arts & Crafts Pavilion: Everything from silk painting to botanical art. This Pavilion housed arts and crafts inspired or made from horticulture.
- North West School’s Container Competition: this year we looked at schools creating their own ‘wonderful window boxes’.
