RHS Hyde Hall Flower Show Highlights

Two RHS gardens in one week.  The first a planned visit to Wisley with some friends and the second a spur of the moment visit to Hyde Hall over in Essex.

Self Portrait

I took lots of photographs at Wisely but, perhaps too impatient or the wrong light, wasn’t pleased with them at all.  Whilst not what I’d call a keen photographer  I do feel I should do the best I can for the blog so I’m trying hard to step away from the phone and use Derek’s Nikon.  So it was off to Hyde Hall to try and do a bit better.

It wasn’t just about the photography though, there were also a couple of nurseries that I was keen to catch up with.  Primrose Bank who put on a stunning display at Tatton Park and Ken Muir because I wanted to talk about fruit trees for the new plot.  This is a quite a small show with around fifty nurseries represented, but they’re all top notch so great if you’re in the market to buy great quality plants at a reasonable price, want plenty of choice and some face to face advice then is a good one for the diary.

What I’ve shown here are some of the things I thought were particularly interesting or pretty.

      I was, except no more flower purchases allowed until next year now.  I did buy some of the strawberry plants though.

      It was Ann and very relaxed. Good if you want to buy plants and need some advice.

    The Prairie Glow looks so pretty against the purple! Beautiful photos. Oh and after seeing purple chillies in your post last week, some popped up on one of my chilli plants that was only in flower last time 🙂

    Those colours and selections look really lovely. I’d like to visit an RHS garden or show someday.

      They make for a great day out Iona, especially if you pack a picnic.

      Bluebell Cottage Gardens also well worth a look at from the Tatton Park post a couple of weeks ago. So much more choice.
