Britain in Bloom garden at Hampton Court

The Britain in Bloom competition is 50 years old in 2014 a fact celebrated with a garden at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, designed by Bloom judge Jon Wheatley and his team. Britain in Bloom started as a way to attract tourists to the UK, but the competition has grown and changed considerably over this time. The garden at Hampton Court reflects how the displays of plants are also changing, from formal bedding in the early days to seed-sown or low-maintenance planting and varieties to attract pollinators today. Wildlife areas and themes like Gerald the Giraffe in Exeter give children scope for imaginative ideas and growing edible plants lets the community see how tasty home-grown vegetables can be.
