RHS Tatton Park Flower Show 2018
18th - 22nd July 2018
What better way to celebrate summer than a day at the RHS Flower Show at Tatton Park.

Set in over 24 acres of magnificent parkland, this RHS flower show offers a wealth of gardening opportunities.

Gardeners have grown to love this flower show for its relaxed ambience, original back-to-back small gardens and exciting show gardens that indulge a wide cross-section of tastes, budgets and planting preferences.

Whether you're a traditionalist at heart, or express a love of contemporary garden design, there is something for everyone to enjoy at Tatton Park Flower Show, and all the means at your disposal to achieve your gardening desires at home.

From the latest trends in plants and furniture, to helpful people who can provide guidance on how to grow, train and manage your garden and your horticultural ambitions; this flower show has everything you need - and didn't know you needed - for your garden to flourish.

It’s all about anniversaries at this year's fabulous floral extravaganza, with 2018 being our 20th flower show and also the 10th anniversary of the ground-breaking RHS Young Designer Competition - which has brought some of the finest gardens to the show and launched some incredible careers.

For the first time, we’re creating The Poisonous Garden, where visitors will be able to explore the gruesome and dangerous nature of some of our best-loved plants. This garden has been specially designed and curated by the RHS alongside gold medal winner Warnes McGarr & Co.

RHS Tatton Park Flower Show

You'll be surrounded by peril in the Poison Tunnel and be lured-in by pretty plants with a dark side - all of course housed safely within reused shipping containers. We've also got talks, tours and demos planned for you courtesy of plant expert Michael Brown and Mr Plant Geek, Michael Perry.
This year we’re creating a vibrant giant flower shape, made up of thousands of sunshine-yellow summer flowers. A mass planting of bright yellow Rudbeckia hirta 'Prairie Sun' will create a stunning visual spectacle at the show, and an amazing photo opportunity for your socials and selfies.
