This year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show promises to be the ultimate
“Great Garden Festival”, with creative displays and exciting new features. From the big top atmosphere of the Rose marquee, to the bustling Community area and the wonderfully wacky Scarecrow competition, there’s so much to see and do.
Hands-on inspiration is at the heart of the event. Discover acres of beautiful garden displays, practical gardening advice, celebrity talks, great shopping, quality food and live music. They’re all served up in a series of fascinating zones, each with its own distinctive theme and flavour. Join us for a great day out with friends and family, all on London’s doorstep.
To make it even easier to enjoy, the show is grouped into three “zones”, each with its own distinctive theme and flavour.
GROW is the horticultural heart of the show. As well as spectacular nursery displays in the floral marquee, you’ll find the inspiring Plant Heritage marquee, outstanding gardening stalls and even more nurseries in the friendly Plant Village. Hands-on help is all around, with RHS experts to quiz, and top nursery plants people sharing their skills on the RHS Potting Benches.
ESCAPE leads you to a whole series of fresh experiences. From our new Community area, set around a village green, to displays celebrating 50 years of RHS Britain in Bloom, to the captivating circus-themed Rose and Floristry marquee. Nearby, the Growing Tastes marquee and the Country Living Pavilion are full of other tempting treats to make your day.
INSPIRE is all about challenging perceptions and pushing boundaries, so prepare to have your eyebrows raised. Brilliant “conceptual” gardens lead the way, featuring the seven deadly sins! You’ll find leading designers trying their hand at Turf Sculpture, a fascinating celebrity programme in the new Talks Theatre, and leading suppliers showing off their latest innovations. Unpredictable and totally unmissable!
