To round of my week of coverage from the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show I thought I’d leave you with a few more snippets of inspiration from around the show.

It really is such a huge flower show with SO much to see that I couldn’t possibly show you everything.  But I hope the photos I’ve shared with you have provided a bit of inspiration for your own garden.

Most of today’s pictures feature some of the planting around the show – sometimes I get so caught up in the hard landscaping and structure of the gardens that I forget to mention the plants and how important they are to the overall look and feel of a space.

Planting can be challenging to get right.  In the UK climate we’re very lucky to be able to grow so many different plants, but this provides a challenge too as sometimes there’s simply too many to choose from.

And there were a lot of grasses all over the show – so brilliant for softening the hard landscaping of any garden and bringing movement even in the slightest breeze, I love them!
