RHS Flower Show Tatton Park
Despite the rain and wet weather we have had recently, the RHS have announced the 2012 RHS Tatton Flower Show will go ahead as normal.
Kris Hulewicz the Show Manager said "This year’s show will go ahead no matter what the weather. Our team on-site is doing everything possible to ensure this will be a great show – just don’t forget your umbrella and wellies!"
New for 2012 are the orchestra gardens, local schools are competing to fill trugs in the RHS Summer Fruit & Vegetable Competition and three young designers are battling it out to be named National Young Designer of the Year 2012. In the flower bed competition, entrants are marking the London Olympics with a 'Celebration of Sport' theme.
Local authorities and community groups from across the UK have risen to the challenge of designing a flowerbed with the theme 'A Celebration of Sport' as part of the annual RHS National Flower Bed Competition. Groups will exploit a wide range of plant material to create designs befitting to Olympic sports such as archery, cycling and athletics. Watch out for Birmingham City Council's floral display of Britain's sailing team featuring a depiction of Olympic hopeful Ben Ainslie, Birmingham have had quite a lot of well deserved attention this year with stunning displays at Chelsea and Gardeners World Live.
Tickets are still available. See the RHS website for more details.
