Big, busy and beautiful


Harrogate Flower Spring Show, run by the North of England Horticultural Society, opened to good weather this week and crowds of enthusiastic plant hunters. With hundreds of exhibitors selling everything from hats to greenhouses, this is a fantastic day out amid the rolling hills of the Yorkshire countryside. Gardening Charity Perennial marked their 175th Anniversary by taking top honours with their show garden, The Essence of York Gate. They were one of 13 show gardens, by Horticultural Colleges, Local Authorities and Landscaping firms. The two Exhibition Halls were packed with plant exhibits, all in magnificent condition thanks to the early spring. Best in Show for plant nurseries went to Southfield Nursery from Bourne in Lincolnshire for their display of cacti and succulents. In all, there were 20 Premier Gold winners, 27 Gold, 30 Silver and 4 Bronze. In Britain’s biggest floral art marquee, displays from Flower Clubs and NAFAS areas took visitors from the sequins of Strictly Flowers to the delights of a literary tour of Europe. Shows like this have something for everyone and are well worth a visit!
