Hyde Hall Flower Show

3-5 August 2012


Plans are well under way for the 2012 Flower Show at RHS Garden Hyde Hall, near Chelmsford, Essex.

A firm favourite with visitors, this showcase event attracts thousands of garden lovers from near and far. With many more than 30 specialist nurseries, there will be a great selection of plants, from ferns and hostas to gladioli and fuchsias to name but a few.

Nurseries will also be exhibiting floral displays to give people inspiration and advice on how to create colourful planting schemes for their own gardens. Combined with a selection of trade stands selling garden sundries and decorative ornaments, the flower show is a one-stop shop for all your gardening needs.

Visitors attending on the first day of the show have the added benefit of a Gardeners' Question Time session with BBC Essex Radio presenter Ken Crowther. Ken will be joined by Tom Cole from Writtle College and freelance gardening expert Geoff Hodge.


There are also Flower Show Breakfast packages which include premium parking, a full English breakfast and early access to the show. Full details are on RHS Online: www.rhs.org.uk/hydehall

And if the pace is all too much, there's a 360-acre estate and gardens where visitors can relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity away from the hubbub of the show site. With its eclectic mix of horticultural styles from traditional English rose gardens to the Mediterranean Dry Garden, it offers a great day out for the whole family.
