RHS Tatton is a superb show, the standard of exhibits is high class and the entertainment is enjoyed by all. The weather this year was once again very warm making the marquee extremely hot during the build up to the show, not easy before judging when flowers are wilting and being hybridised by insects but its all part of the fun.

 

There were some extremely good exhibits, which kept the judges busy

This one was my own personal choice of Best Exhibit in the whole floral marquee, a wonderful exhibit showing some excellent exhibits and a very unique way of showing them off
