What was on offer to visitors at the 2014 show

The 2014 show was exciting as ever!  Here are just a few of the highlights:

  • The Show, Artisan and Fresh Garden categories offered an exciting line-up to get ideas for your own garden flowing.
  • In the Great Pavilion, new exhibitors included Drointon Nurseries, City of Cape Town, Creative Garden Design and PW Bamboo, whilst longstanding exhibitor Hilliers created a stunning display on the Monument site at the heart of the Great Pavilion to mark their 150th anniversary
  • Anniversary displays in the Great Pavilion included NAFAS’s display celebrating their Emerald anniversary (55 years) titled “A Green Thought in a Green Shade”, a one-off display by Perennial marking their 175 years of support for horticulturists and a stunning display by South West in Bloom highlighting “Fifty Golden Years of Bloom”
  • Birmingham City Council’s Great Pavilion display remembered those who were involved in the First World War. Hooksgreen Herbs staged a herb garden inspired by Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit stories, and there was an exciting fusion of garden design and floristry inspired by Royal Leamington Spa sponsored by BID Leamington Ltd with Sarah Horne Flowers and Creative Garden Design. Pattaya City & Nong Nooch Botanical Garden’s evocative and colourful display celebrated “Thailand: Our Pride, Our Monarch & Our Cultural Heritage”, whilst Sallis Chandler worked with M&S and Finlays to create “Nature’s Helpers: Bees-Butterflies-Bugs”, highlighting ways in which cut flower producers can work in harmony with pollinators and beneficial insects
  • New for 2014, Discovery (in the Great Pavilion) replaced RHS Environment and showcased the best scientific and educational exhibits from the world of horticulture
