The garden where taste is as important as looks
Three major seed and plant companies have joined forces to create a show garden with a message for RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival 2019.
From growing ideas in the formal vegetable area and unusual edibles in the forest garden to the soft fruit growing display, a feast for the eyes and tastebuds is promised. Flower lovers are catered for, with a stunning Sunflower Meadow.
A greenhouse and patio area to show fruit and vegetables in pots and containers for urban gardening will be on show and Lubera will plant up a soft fruit garden.
Lubera’s strawberry Double Pleasures, with deep pink blooms will feature, and on the weekend of July 6-7, children can pot up plants and take them home with them.
Cook as you grow demos
Visitors will be able to walk through the exhibit and each day fruit and veg will be used in the garden’s cooking demonstration area hosted by Mark Diacono of Otter Farm fame.
Lubera’s Markus Kobelt said: “This will be the first time that we have been involved with a show garden at the Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival.
“We are so excited to be making our debut together with Pennard and Burpee, two truly innovative horticultural specialists.
“Together we plan to produce a stunning example of how everyone can enjoy the fruits of their labours… from plot to plate!”
