RHS Garden Hyde Hall

The Royal Horticultural Society has teamed up with seed and plant experts Thompson & Morgan to create an inspirational garden experience for visitors this summer.

‘Floral Fantasia’ will be showcased at RHS Garden Hyde Hall, in Essex between 1st June and 30th September and provide an extra bit of the site to see during a visit.

With an area of the garden transformed, visitors will be treated to thousands of summer bedding plants on display in beds, pots and hanging baskets in and around the Floral Fantasia garden. 

Floral Fantasia: what will you see?

The event will be themed by ‘Inspiring Gardeners Old and New’ and aims to provide visitors with inspiration to create floral impact in their own gardens. 

Amongst the flower exhibits will be Thomson & Morgan’s new and exclusive sunflower, Sunbelievable™, which will be on display in borders and pots.

RHS Garden Hyde Hall’s head of site, Ian Le Gros, commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Floral Fantasia to Hyde Hall for the first time and it’s been great to work with Thompson & Morgan on this project. 

“It will provide a dazzling display during the summer months and will surely inspire novice and seasoned gardeners, both old and young, to have a go at growing themselves.”
