Malvern show is good for buying plants and talking to the growers about how to care for them. Lots of other stands too but not wonderful show gardens althouh they're nice enough. Chelsea is good for show gardens big and small and talking to growers in the amazing floral marquee but, apart from a few seeds and lily bulbs you can only order plants for later delivery. Tatton is similar to Malvern but bigger and, being later in the season, has a greater variety of plants on sale. Haven't been to Hampton Court since it first started and found it really awful to get to and from cos of parking problems and distances which are not good if, like I was, you are driving a pushchair and carrying plants.
