We’ve been lucky enough to enjoy – as well as learn from – this year’s extraordinary show.
(PRWEB UK) 2 August 2013
This summer, gardeners all over the globe flocked to the UK’s shores between 9th and 14th July to catch the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show – with Altons Garden Centre sharing in the excitement.
Known the world over for its exotic show gardens and stunning flower marquees, the show attracts over 300,000 visitors a year; and since its inception back in 1990 has become an outstanding success where to this day, remains a benchmark for first-class gardening.
James Oxley of Altons Garden Centre commented: “We’re extremely fortunate that the UK is home to some of the most highly-regarded horticultural events in the world – what with the likes of both the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show popular with green-fingered fans both on a local and international scale. With a number of celebrities also in attendance, we’ve been lucky enough to enjoy – as well as learn from – this year’s extraordinary show.”
With a multitude of awards given to some of the most inspiring gardens, many demonstrated the beauty of accessorising the outdoors – from stunning plants to colourful lamps. Lending its ideas from the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, Altons Garden Centre suggests sprucing the garden up with a variety of furnishings – from hammocks and gazebos to recliners and garden benches.
“Household names including Bill Oddie, Linda Barker and Kate Humble also graced the show,” added Oxley. “And with the recent Celebrity Speakers & Catwalk in Bloom Theatre programme also occurring, it’s great that there’s been something for all the family. From learning about sustainable living to appreciating the different sculptures in the Inspire Zone, we knew that this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show would be one of the very best in its history.”
