RHS Hampton Court Flower Show: Best of the rest

Here are our final photographs from RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.  The lovely people at Badger beer were serving samples of their delicious range (Hopping Hare, a fave).  Their garden and beer fountains were lovely, but jam packed with people, so no photos.  Excellent sign though.

I love wildflower meadows…

The Garlic Farm‘s exhibit was my favourite in the Growing for Taste marquee.

Pennard Plants vegetable display.

Lovely Sussex hens at the Flyte so Fancy exhibit.

Rose of the year, You’re Beautiful.

Hampton Court Flower Show 2012 – Floral Marquee

We were so lucky.  So so lucky.  We went to our first Hampton Court Flower Show this year and amidst weeks and weeks of rain, the sun shone. It was glorious and sweltering and I was rather inappropriately dressed (work dress, incl. black 60 denier which I laddered – hot!).  Fortunately for me, we found a beer tent upon entry and I had packed sunglasses.

As newbies we were mystified by many things, number one being the countless people pulling along their purchases with box carts – after an entire afternoon on site we were still none the wiser as to where people were purchasing these things.  Also the Plant Heritage Marquee completely passed me by and we missed a number of show gardens.  Amateurs.  But anyway, I loved it.  We took an awful lot of photos.  Here are the best of the floral marquee.
