There is something special about Hampton Court Flower Show, it’s one of my favourite events of the year. I think the rather glorious weather made it even better this time! The gardens were amazing, with an incredible variety of themes and blooms featured. There were some show stopping stands also and the day was a hive of excitement and activity throughout the day.

Childhood stories were brought to life with fantastic statues of characters from Peter Rabbit. The detail in these creations had to be seen to be believed! Who wouldn’t want Benjamin Bunny and Mrs Tiggywinkle pottering about their garden? Just be sure to watch out for Mr Tod the fox!

One of the things I was most impressed by was the array of garden buildings and structures. From personal pods to vast safari style dining areas it was just incredible! Featured below are a few of my favourites:

 

Here are some of the highlights of the show this year:

What I love most of all about this show is the variety of styles it includes. From traditional roses to creations that defy gravity, they really do have it all! A particular favourite was this ‘spiderweb’ created by The Academy of Floristry, the smell as you passed by was glorious!

I was lucky enough to see Maxine Hunt of Big Black House Design Company creating her garden accessories on the stand. The benches she had on display were so eye catching and unique – a stunning product.

From beautiful blooms and award winning gardens to impressive garden structures and handcrafted accessories – Hampton Court provided yet another standout show. I’m already signed up for next year!
