RHS Tatton Park Flower Show: The Gardens

Last week Country Baskets team visited the wonderful RHS Tatton Flower Show held at the beautiful Tatton Park. One of our favourite elements of the show was The Gardens, each and every garden was different and told a story. Each garden was designed with a theme in mind, considering the space, the plants and flowers used, the furniture featured, which resulted in some beautiful and compact areas within the show grounds. We've picked out a few of our favourites below!

Slow the Flow Garden

Large clean-cut concrete beams and smooth metal rills create a contrasting element to the bushy greenery of this garden. This garden was designed with the issue of non-porous materials contributing to floods and also a potential solution that demonstrates techniques for capturing, retaining and slowing the flow of rainfall. 

This amazing garden was designed by John Everiss Design and Franchesca Murrell.

Peace Garden

The mix of bright flowers along side contrasting wicker structures and the dark wood with colourful fabrics creates a mismatched and bohemian feel to this garden, making it a relaxing experience for all.
