The 2nd Royal Horticultural Society Flower
Show to be held in Tatton Park was hailed a success and it seems
likely that the the show will now become a regular feature in Tatton
Park's annual calendar of events.
Knutsford's own rose growers Fryer's won a gold award for their
display which included the new Cheshire Rose. And although thousands
of visitors passed through the twenty acres of showground during
the five days there was not a garden gnome to be seen. The little
chaps had been banned by organisers since their presence was considered
tacky. For those of you who, like the garden gnomes, didn't
make it to the show, or for those of you who simply can't get enough
of spectacular gardens, here are some highlights and memories of
Tatton's second flower show.
The show ran for five days from Wednesday
19 July, when it opened to RHS members, until Sunday 23, when the
big sell off took place as stands and exhibits were dismantled.
