It’s not just Tudor roses at the Hampton Court Flower Show…

American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson once said that, “the earth laughs in flowers”, and with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Flower Show in full swing at Hampton Court Palace this week, it’s not hard to see why. As well as the annual RHS Floral Marquee, filled with a gorgeous display of British and international flower varieties, this year’s event boasts masterfully-designed show gardens, an on-site farmers’ market and even a tropical butterfly sanctuary. We thought we’d add to the celebrations with this selection of homes whose gardens are teeming with beautiful plants and flowers.
