Matthew Biggs has just been on Gardeners’ Question Time talking about the Floral Marquee and the joy of buying plants at big events like Tatton, but also at Plant Heritage plant sales. You can catch the repeat of this programme on Sunday at 2pm on Radio 4 and to wet your appetite here are a few more images of Collection Holder exhibits in the Floral Marquee at Tatton.
A new Passiflora yet to be named from Jane Lindsay of Tynings Climbers
Another fantastic display of Heuchera from Plantagogo.
A rainbow of pastel shades of Streptocarpus from Dibleys
A manificent stand of Hosta ‘Yellow River’ from Mickfield Hostas
Pheasant Acre Plants, not a Collection Holder, but awarded Best Exhibit in the RHS Floral Marquee for their display of Gladiolus. A genus due for a revival in popularity?
And because it was gobsmackingly good and I was brought up with tales of guarding show leeks on my uncle’s allotment, a display of vegetables by Medwyns of Anglesey
