Am going tomorrow on RHS day & the forecast is AWFUL! 3 pairs of wellies at the ready & waterproof trousers a possibility.
Show gardens, small back to back gardens- lots of ideas there for your own average sized plot. Usually a couple of plant marquees with lots to buy, plus the plant plaza where there are smaller stands from lots of nurseries all with plants to buy. Their little displays are usually excellent too.
Bedding plant displays/gardens from local authorities.
Country Living pavillion too for those more interested in foods, pictures, jewelry etc etc. Am on the look out for a soil coloured sunhat!
Flower arranging displays also, again if people interested.
Have an increasing list of 'wants'. The plant creche is well used by most people & takes all sorts too not just plants.
Oh yes, often displays from greenhouse suppliers, tools etc with good show discounts, gloves & other garden sundries too.
Lost count of the times been, 8? Never been to GW live, so cant compare. Been to Malvern Autumn show in past, that felt smaller than Tatton IMO. J.
