The Hyde Hall Flower Show, hosted by the Royal Horticultural Society, offers an exciting event housed in breathtakingly beautiful landscaped gardens. Astonishingly, this venue started out as a private garden with just six trees, but is now a 360 acre estate, boasting panoramic views that are among the best in Essex.
Who's It For? A great one for the ladies - if you enjoy aesthetics, design and décor and the great outdoors, this will be perfect for you, whether you are a keen gardener or not. However, all can benefit.
Why We Love It: This event focuses on Essex's own home-grown talent, and is full of opportunities for expert advice and tips. Award-winning floral designer Jonathan Moseley will be heading the event's star attraction, the British Flower bus. Guests can get the lowdown on seasonal British flowers, plus learn via Moseley's demonstrations how to make their own floral wreath decorations!
Plus here's a summary of all the other attractions you can expect as part of the event:
Shopping Avenue: Enjoy a fabulous range of specialist nurseries, offering a wide variety of quality plants. There will also be a diverse selection of gardening stalls where you can pick up essentials such as tools and equipment as well as decorative items and garden furniture. Each nursery will also create a mini display garden packed with ideas and inspiration for your own garden.
Floral Art: Be amazed by innovative displays and chat to staff from Writtle University College about their floral and horticultural courses.
Made in Essex Craft Show: A celebration of contemporary craft, art and locally produced food and, as the name suggests, all the exhibitors will be from Essex.
