Hampton Court

This year we
are celebrating our 25th anniversary of participating in the RHS
Hampton Court Flower Shot. Our garden is now under way and everybody is working
hard to create an ‘Urban Oasis’, there’s still lots of work to be done, but it
will look fantastic once it’s finished.

Our garden
is inspired by our customers and the area in which we are located. Our customers
want plants that give them joy and do not disappoint, attractive surroundings
in which to relax, and have a desire to promote wildlife. The journey through
the garden takes you around the perimeter where a formal green backdrop sets
off colourful planting including wild flowers to bring a hint of the
countryside into the garden. There are two seating areas to catch the morning
and evening sun. The brook does not replicate the Thames but gives a nod to the
river which is so important to the local community.

I do hope
that if you’re visiting the show that you’ll pop along to see it for yourselves,
we shall be at stand number: IN342.

We Won A Silver Flora!

It was a very exciting day for us down at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show preview yesterday. I’m really pleased with the way the garden has turned out this year – especially as we haven’t done an outside garden for such a long time. And all our hard work has paid off as we were awarded a Silver Flora Medal. This was a very special garden for us so to have our achievement recognised with a medal is fantastic.

As a local horticultural business our garden very much reflects the potential for local home gardens – the unsung heroes of the gardening world! We’re passionate about making gardening and growing something that anyone can do, no matter what their experience is, or how big or small their growing space. One of the features of our garden that received a lot of attention yesterday was the living wall – and it’s a great example of how a different perspective can transform walls and fences into something really spectacular.

Here is my father and Ian Hammond, head of the plant department at our Twickenham centre who designed and planted our garden.

I am particularly pleased with how colourful and inviting it looks. If you are coming to Hampton Court please come and visit us at Show Gardens Stand E128 and send us your pictures. I’d really love to see them- just pop them across to marketing@squiresgardencentres.co.ukimage
