I have so many happy memories of visiting Hampton Court (dont ask my favourite its an English thing!). Internationally many people have heard of the Chelsea Flower show. This week it is the turn of Hampton Court Flower Show which is the scene of great rose displays.
Here is a garden that somehow brings it all together. I love the story of its design. It began as a committee effort but every committee needs a chairman to bring it all together and keep all the hard work on track! Of course I am biased living at the heart of Shakepeare's Warwickshire. The Garden is called Much ado about nothing
A ***** rating from us
good luck for the judging from all the team at Shirley Price
