RHS flower Show Tatton Park 2015

by Wendy Syddall

Yesterday, Daddy, Mum and I went to the RHS Tatton Park flower show for the day. It was quite a wet day, although this is not a complaint as its much more preferable than a hot day for me looking at gardens. The floral marquee was bigger than ever and had lots of amazing colourful flowers. The gardens: show gardens, back-to-back and school ones were mostly lovely and I took some pictures which are below. I would say, however, that finding the show gardens especially is difficult as they are dotted about all over. I think we did see them all. Interestingly, on the BBC coverage of the show Monty Don said the back-to-back gardens haven’t been at the show for 3 years which would explain why we couldn’t find them last year, I just thought we had somehow missed them. I didn’t buy anything at the show, I found a gorgeous rose called Nostalgia, cherry red petals on the outside and white in the middle. They didn’t have any at the show for sale, but I got one on the way home at Fryers Garden Centre in Knutsford.

Here are some of my pictures:
