It’s hard to beat the RHS Flower Shows when it comes to finding combinations of flowers that make your heart soar. At an event like this, everyone will see many of their personal favourites on display, together with a plentiful supply of new plant varieties and planting ideas.
Here’s my floral lookbook of images of cottage garden style plants, gleaned from the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2018. I hope I’ve included some of your favourites and that you’ll enjoy the soft, warm and heady colour combinations.
If you’re planning to visit the show, most of these were taken in the Floral Marquee: on the Botanic Nursery display (A,C,E,G,K); on Todd’s Botanics’ display (B,D,F,I,J,L) and on Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants (M). To see David Austin Roses (H) call in at the Festival of Roses Marquee.
