RHS Letters at RHS Tatton Park 2022
RHS Tatton Park, the North West’s glorious summer flower show, returned (20 – 24 July 2022) bringing a great day out packed with highlights.

Planet-friendly gardening inspiration

Green ideas took RHS Tatton Park by storm with themes from front garden style and growing-your-own, to soil health and planet-friendly gardening practices.

The Cotton Traders Greener Future Garden
Greener Front Gardens featured creative, and beautiful, ways to make wonderful wildlife habitats out of front garden patches, while making sure they’re still practical for everyday living. Whether you have a car to park, or a bike to store, the gardens showed how to make the most of a front plot to boost your wellbeing and attract wildlife to your home.

The BBC Radio 2 and The One Show’s Sow, Grow and Show Garden, designed by renowned designer and broadcaster Joe Swift, encouraged everyone to discover the joys of gardening and to get planting. Vegetable beds in the garden promised a bumper crop of carrots, salad leaves, potatoes, beans and sweetcorn, while an abundance of beautiful grasses and perennials offered inspiration for cut flower patches at home. 

You could see the best of the bunch at the Summer Fruit and Veg Competition, along with mouth-watering displays from Northern Fruit Group and Cheshire Gooseberry Society – even featuring the Heaviest Gooseberry competition.

School Allotments at RHS Tatton Park 2022
The School Allotments pulled together the creative ideas and handiwork of local school children who created garden and container displays ready for the show.

Hands-on at Homestead

You could see and have a go at horticultural- and botanical-inspired craft practices at the Homestead area of RHS Tatton Park.

There was chance to discover the therapeutic benefits of herbs with The Herb Society or learn how to create a sustainable, mindful and productive garden with best-selling author Jack Wallington.

A dining table encircled by a timber screen offered space for socialising and eating together while scented planting stimulated the senses and the mind.
