Visitors had the chance to indulge their plant passion at the world's biggest annual plant show. They could see and buy the season’s must-have plants and products and enjoy a spectacular family day out
The Floral Marquee, sponsored by Lexus, was more exciting than ever at the last show.
Positioned at the entrance of the marquee (Stand G201), show-goers could speak to the Lexus team to find out about Hybrid Technology and how Lexus have developed it in their range of vehicles.
Featuring almost 100 hand-picked nurseries displaying and selling award-winning plants and products, the marquee really was the place to buy plants. Purchases could be dropped off at the Plant Crèche to be collected later in the day, or delivered by our team of plant porters to either the Stud Gate Car Park or the steps at the end of Barge Walk.
A plant lover’s paradise filled with colourful displays, the bustling Plant Village offered another exciting plant shopping experience.
Plant Heritage exhibitors joined the other nurseries in the Floral Marquee, increasing the range of plants to see and buy, and bringing rare and unusual floral gems.
You could see some of the best National Plant Collections from around the country and chat with experts as well as buy their plants.
