For the fifth successive year, RHS Garden Hyde Hall in Essex will be hosting its flagship flower show event from Thursday 31 July to Sunday 3 August. An inspiration for gardeners of all ages and abilities, the show includes more than 50 high-quality nurseries and garden sundry suppliers, along with RHS Gardening Advice, talks from expert nurserymen, and the chance to explore the garden in full bloom.
This year there will be a greater choice of plants for visitors to enjoy thanks to a number of nurseries joining us for the very first time. Dibleys Nurseries, which is celebrating its 25th RHS Chelsea Flower Show Gold medal, will be bringing a selection of indoor plants, and Mandy Plants, which specialises in growing flowering vines, will be coming along with a fabulous range of mandevillas. Also new is bulb expert Brighter Blooms, which will be selling ever-popular calla lilies, and Paradise Plants from Kent which specialises in rare and unusual shrubs and trees.
With a dedicated team of RHS garden advisors on hand, as well as specialist growers, visitors will be sure of selecting and choosing the right plants for their garden. Those attending on the first day of the show will also have the opportunity to quiz BBC Radio Essex presenter, Ken Crowther, who will be hosting question-and-answer sessions during the day.
Visitors needing a well-earned break from shopping can leave their purchases in the plant cr?che while they discover the the beauty of RHS Garden Hyde Hall in its full summer glory. From the gorgeous colour-themed Herbaceous Border bursting with traditional favourites to the Mediterranean-styled Dry Garden with its fabulous range of drought-tolerant plants, there?s a wealth of planting styles to spur everyone’s creativity.
There will be plenty of places to stop for a cup of tea and a piece of cake, but RHS members who really want to start the day off at a more leisurely pace can take advantage of special flower show breakfast packages which include a guided tour, a full English breakfast and early-bird entry to the show site. Groups of 10+ can also benefit from discounted admission prices to the garden.
