I went to the Hampton Court flower show last weekend which was great. I heard it said that this is now the largest flower show in the world, which I can believe! I have been going to Hampton since it first started and really like it as a show as it is quite accessible, and more importantly you can buy plants (you can’t at Chelsea). Over the years it has got a lot bigger and better, in particular I think the show gardens are now a much better quality than they were with the show getting more coverage as a result.

|I want! why bother with lots of leaves, just have one! I want! a huge leafed Santolina|

However, we tore ourselves away and went off to the garden with two friends whom had never been to an open garden before....they were initially sceptical, but lured with the promise of tea and cake. It was a lovely garden on a slope with a bar (for drinks) at the top which was great to see. As we all sat on a table amongst the beauty, drinking tea and each eating our 2 slices of fabulous cake they were both sold on NGS, phew!
