Hampton Court Flower Show Part Four – more gardens … more nurseries … just more!

Hampton Court Palace Flower Show – A Gallery

One large gallery for the whole of my visit at the Hampton Court Flower Show 2017 - so much to see, so much to admire, so much to appreciate and learn. All in one huge gallery of images from the moment I stepped into the Show to my exit several hours later. Show Gardens and…

Lavender blue, dilly dilly – and white, pink, green, mauve, violet (more from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show & Downderry Nursery)

Downderry Nursery in Kent are magicians when it comes to Lavender - with a collection of over 400 varieties and a breeding program bringing new cultivars to market.  Their Gold medal exhibit at Chelsea was a huge wheel of colour and fragrance - and in my haste to capture as many individual varieties in detail,…

Preview Evening – RHS Hampton Court Flower Show – a rather substantial gallery (no apologies…)

Marilyn, Rockers and a comfy chair..

Rocking around the clock Drainpipes, jukebox, brilliant colours and design. I think 'his' shoes are known as 'brothel creepers...'…

David Austin Roses at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show

A Gold Medal winning exhibition from David Austin at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, which finished yesterday. By far the most exuberant staging from any of the rose nurseries, dominating the Rose Marquee. If only there was a 'scent' button on your keyboard.. A comprehensive selection of their English Roses, displayed enclosed within a…

RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2013

RHS Hampton Court Flower Show A photo-montage for the few hours that I spent strolling through Show earlier today. So many more photographs have been posted onto my Facebook page - and they are publicly available images  - http://www.facebook.com/theteddingtongardener - that it is worth a look for the Enthusiast. And I joined the Historic Roses…
