Did your favourite garden or exhibit win gold?

It’s results time at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show – here are the judges’ opinions of the Show, World, Conceptual Gardens and for the first time, Gardens for a Changing World exhibits.

Judged during Press Day yesterday (Monday, July 3), the world’s biggest flower show is open to RHS members today and tomorrow, then to everyone from Thursday.

There is still the People’s Choice to vote for – my vote is going to Charlie Bloom’s Garden Designs: Colour Box, a show garden made without corporate backing, with donations of plants, materials and time through the Twitter gardening community.

You have until noon on Friday, July 7 to vote – https://www.rhs.org.uk/shows-events/rhs-hampton-court-palace-flower-show/rhs-peoples-choice-award
