  1. Hi Fiona! I’m Sally the Canadian who became your new best friend at the show. Thank you so much for getting us into the grounds. We had a fabulous day and loved all the exhibits. I hope James enjoyed himself too!

    1. Ha! I wondered if you would read this; I am so glad you enjoyed yourselves – it is so nice to hear from you. It was no problem to have you added as my guest and it allowed you to see a whole lot more on your holiday. I hope you enjoy reading about RHS Hampton Court

  2. Fabulous photos Fiona, and well done on restraining your buying urge! Though how one would choose just a few plants from such a tempting display escapes me. Those alliums are amazing: that’s probably where I’d spend my money if I was there.

    1. Thank you very much; yes, the Alliums were gorgeous and I did contemplate for a long time but I felt not budget worthy as the prices seemed quite high. The plugs I bought for £2.50 seemed a better deal at the time. I will look in to bulb deals closer to planting time as Alliums are something I don’t have yet.

  3. Glad you enjoyed Hampton Court too! My internet is currently painfully slow to load images so I will have to come back later to enjoy them. Grrrr….

  4. Your photos are lovely! I got too hot too and slightly overwhelmed. My strategy next time I think is going to be to spend more time on a few show gardens and perhaps less time in Floral Marquee. Except that was the coolest place…I already avoided the trade stands so I don’t know how you can really manage it , it is just so HUGE!!!

    1. Thank you! Unfortunately, the trade stands were the least crowded. Some other stuff was interesting and I took pictures for ideas but not for posting. The gardens were the most crowded despite the heat. I didn’t go to the country living tent. By the time I got to the Floral design I was too hot despite their aircon -and James was at the end of his rope. You are right -it is HUGE! (but I felt more manageable than Chelsea; I guess more space to move)
