Ladybrook Nursery’s Preparations for the Tatton Park RHS Flower Show are on Course, Despite the Unseasonal Weather.

It won’t be long now until Tatton Park once again hosts the annual RHS Flower Show.

The event will take place on 22 -26 July at Tatton Park in Cheshire. The event has proved to be increasingly popular amongst North-West garden enthusiasts, and this year’s spectacular will no doubt further cement its glowing reputation.

Tatton Park will be celebrating the International Year of Light through conceptual garden design.

The themes of the 2015 RHS Tatton Park Flower Show are ‘grow’ ‘inspire’ and ‘feast’. Visitors will have access to a variety of nursery displays and plant stalls, along with Blooming Beds, Show Gardens, Back-to-Back Gardens, RHD Potting Benches, School Gardens, the RHS Fruit and Vegetable Competition Pavilion, the Feast Theatre, the Plant Village, a Plant Heritage Marquee, a Floral Marquee, and the RHS National Flowerbed Competition.

Although the event itself will be held in late July, preparations started much earlier for those involved. Prospective garden designers had to go through a rigorous selection process before their designs were granted RHS approval. Once selected, garden designers then had to source their plants from suppliers like Ladybrook Nursery. We have a long history with the Tatton Show and have been a major supplier for the show since day 1. We’re proud to say we’ve won numerous golds, bronzes and silver-guilt medals for customers as well as the best in show.

Ladybrook Nursery’s preparations for this year’s RHS Tatton Flower Show began in February.

After being contacted by garden designers, we sourced the required plants and have spent the last 4 months growing them on from there. However, the weather certainly hasn’t helped our preparations. The unseasonal cold and dampness have meant that we’ve had to manipulate the plants and bring them inside. We faced similar problems when we were preparing for the Chelsea Flower Show earlier this year.

However, despite the ‘best efforts’ of the weather, everything is now well in hand, and all our plants should be ready and in perfect showing condition by July.

We’ll keep you updated about our preparations for the show over the coming weeks.

If you haven’t booked your tickets yet, then Ladybrook Nursery would urge you to reserve them as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. To book, visit the Royal Horticultural Website
