4th to 9th of July

RHS Hampton Court Palace garden festival

The show runs from the 4th to the 9th of July, and it’s going to be another team effort for Flowers from the Farm. Dozens of flower farmers across the South East are coming together and bringing their flowers, energy, and floristry skills to decorate the Flower School marquee with floral installations and host free floral demonstrations and hands-on workshops.

The Flower School promises to be a celebration of garden-style British cut flowers grown by over 30 flower farmers within 30 miles of the showground. Every morning at 11 am, visitors can watch floral demonstrations by farmer-florists, who both grow and arrange their flowers.

The line-up is as follows:

  • Monday: Alice Antcliff from Meadowfolk
  • Tuesday: Jill Houston of Little Park Flowers
  • Wednesday: Katie Stone of Featherstone’s English Flower Company
  • Thursday: Bex Partridge of Botanical Tales
  • Friday: Camila Klich and Marianne Mogendorff of Wolves Lane Flower Company
  • Saturday: Paul and Helen Stickland of Black Shed Flower Farm.

In the afternoons at 2 pm, some of the country’s florists will be getting creative with the flowers and foliages from Flowers from the Farm members and talking about how British-grown flowers inspire their designs. The line-up will star:

  • Monday: Leigh Chappell
  • Tuesday: Simon Lycett
  • Wednesday: Shane Connolly
  • Thursday: Rebel Rebel
  • Friday: Camila Klich and Marianne Mogendorff of Wolves Lane Flower Company
  • Saturday: Alice McCabe.                   

Members Nicola Hill, Ruth Woolacott, Sophie Hamilton, and Kat Norbury

Now, there are currently 179 grower members of FFTF in the South East region alone, and 33 of them will be participating in this year’s show.
