With a whole host of amazing gardens to see, design tips, shopping and growing inspiration, the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park should be a must-do event in the calendar of who has an interest in anything horticultural. This is one of the most popular Flower Shows organised by the Royal Horticultural Society and promises to be an inspiration for those with green fingers or those simply looking for an interesting and exciting trip away.
We also include a visit to the Garden at Dunham Massey. This is a National Trust property, set in the grounds of the 18th century house. The garden is a great plantsman's garden with interesting historic features such as the Orangery, Pump House, Victorian Bark House and the remains of an Elizabethan Mount. The 300 acre garden is home to over 1600 winter shrubs, trees and evergreens chosen for their scent, colour and texture.
