Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2012 (Part 3)

September 11, 2012

The Floral Marquee at Hampton Court is vast and very crowded. There are plants on display that have already been judged for medals, as well as plants for sale from the nurseries. The whole showground set in such an astonishing place is a spectacle not to be missed by anyone.

I and my spouse, Don, were very lucky to get to tour the Hampton Court Flower Show several years ago. It is indeed the best thing I have ever seen. Since we were from America no way to bring anything back on the plane. Many wonderful booths to shop, wonderful display of small plot gardening. Beautiful designs. Thanks for the posting. Hurray!

Dear dera, I am so glad that you got to see Hampton Court it is a fantastic sight set in remarkable settings. We have the worlds most famous flower show first at Chelsea then Hampton Court which is the biggest and getting bigger every year! Then we have Tatton park which is astonishing as well. There are many other shows in between, but they are the main ones. There are indeed many wonderful shops to shop in and go broke!
It is hard to do three Articles and put in what it is really like, for unless you have been there and felt the atmosphere, not only of the show but of the Palace and its grounds it is hard to explain.
I hope to see you there in the years to come, or at Chelsea!
Regards from England.
