This blog is a copy of a blog posted on growonyou.com/thelonegardener in 2011, a blog which I intend to close down, so will be copying them on to wordpress over the next few weeks. Growsonyou.com is a fantastic site for information but I decided its time to keep all my blogs together. In this blog there are some fantastic pictures !!!
Hope you enjoy it …
This was my first visit to Hampton Court, let alone the flower show. I work as a gardener and I am always on the look out for inspiration. Why have I not been here before…!!! The beds around the gardens on the way in were stunning. Interesting to note that large borders still maybe have only two different type of plants, reds and yellows or blues and whites were also very popular.
Sorry no pics of Hampton Court gardens, but I do have some pics of the floral marquee, I would like to add that I show these merely as a ‘tourist with a camera’, and I have no intention of claiming copyright on these pictures, and if anyone has issue please tell me and I will remove if/where necessary.
All these photo’s were taken in the floral marquee.
(Below) Definitely going to order some of these wonderful Nemesias for the waterfall. They are so bright, i love em!
(Above) I have ordered 48 chrysanthemum plants from this company. They really were the best quality, and so full of knowledge about their plants.
Hope you enjoyed them, if you want to see pictures of the gardens the show is still on until Sunday, and I believe they get rid of a lot of the plants for next to nothing on Sunday afternoon ??? Good Luck TLG
