The RHS Flower Shows are every gardeners dream event with the displays of the latest trends and enough flower and plant stands filled with all the weird and wonderful. A local event to Hedges Direct, the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park started this week (17th July) and so it would be rude for us not to pop down for a visit to keep on trend with all the latest gardening styles and to also come away with ideas and more products to add to our stock.
So Let’s Have A Look At Some Of The Styles At This Year’s Tatton Park Flower Show
A key trend that was prominent in almost every show garden at this year event was grasses. Ornamental grasses are ideal to add texture, movement, colour and even height to a garden planting scheme. They are often used to complement other plants by softening lines and adding a contrasting look and style that enhances the overall interest and aesthetic of the scheme.
We have recently launched our new range of Ornamental grasses which include some of the species used at Tatton Park.

The BBC North West Tonight Sunshine Garden – In Memory of Dianne Oxberry
“Created in memory of weather presenter Dianne Oxberry, this garden showcases how even the smallest space can be bright, uplifting and fit for all that the British weather brings.
Comedian Peter Kay once said Dianne ‘brought sunshine into all our lives’ and this is reflected in the garden, which is full of warmth. It features a hot border planting palette that’s low maintenance and perfect for pollinating insects. ” – RHS Tatton Park
