Tatton Floral Marquee showcases top nurseries


There were several favourites for me in the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show Floral Marquee this year. This year, the displays in the Floral Marquee were among the best I have seen in some years.

Evidence of the standard is marked by the award of 34 Gold Medals with Best Exhibit going to Southfield Nurseries for their display of cacti and succulents.

Below is just a taste of what caught my eye this year and honestly it is just a taste because there was so much of interest to drool over. Well done to everyone exhibiting in the Floral Marquee – a vintage year I think.
