RHS Garden Rosemoor Flower Show, supported by Atkins Ferrie Wealth Management, highlighted the very best nurseries and local fare from the South West - all set against the stunning backdrop of the 65 acre (26ha) garden.
 


 

Among the highlights were...

Garden ShelterGarden shelters

Our garden shelters were transformed by the North Devon Flower Clubs and members of The National Association of Flower Arranging Societies (NAFAS). Each shelter was given a Beatrix Potter theme. Members of NAFAS clubs displaying at Rosemoor also gave two flower arranging demonstrations each day of the Flower Show. 

The five clubs were:

  • The Cob Shelter – Atlantic Flower Club
  • Winter Garden Shelter – Chumleigh Floral Art Club
  • Amdega Shelter – Ilfracombe Floral Art Club
  • Cottage Garden Shelter – South Molton & District Flower Club
  • Fruit & Vegetable Garden Shelter – Barnstaple Floral Art Club

Floral designer Jonathan Moseley’s hugely popular British Flower Bus made a stop at the show. Jonathan, well known for his role on the BBC's The Big Allotment Challenge, gave two flower arranging demonstrations each day while championing British-grown flowers.
