Hints & Tips
A tremendously diverse range of gardens are set to feature at the forthcoming Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
The event – which is one of the biggest garden shows in the country, after Chelsea – is being hosted by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and will run from July 9th to the 14th.
Planning to attract pollinating wildlife has emerged as one of the key themes for this year's Hampton Court Palace show.
Surrey Garden's Bugs in Boots is a case in point, as it uses species that feature on the RHS Perfect for Pollinators list to create sustenance and a maintainable living environment for as wide a range of insects as possible.
The Hot Stuff Garden from Victoria Truman and Liz Rentzsch Garden Design uses flowering annuals and herbaceous plants to offer a food source for pollinating insects.
Several wildlife features dedicated to bees and butterflies will also be present at the show, in addition to the specialised gardens.
