From butterflies to bus stops, RHS Tatton 2017 offered a vibrant, inspiring and entertaining day out filled with surprises.

A key theme this year was Future Spaces, challenging garden designers to consider how gardens both public and private might work in the not so distant future, to cope with climate change, improve health and wellbeing and increasingly crowded cities.

Once again, the back to back gardens offered inspiration and ideas for the smallest spaces, showing just how much can be done in any outside area, while the Show Gardens gave us insight into just how glorious a large garden can be, with luxuriant planting and inspired landscaping.

As well as the annual Young Designer Competition, the scent filled Floral Marquee, the community groups’ Blooming Borders and Bus Stop Boulevard, this year brought a huge Butterfly Dome to Tatton, filled with tropical plants and exotic butterflies and an inspirational hanging garden from Show sponsors Bruntwood, who show just how we can use those plants so often overlooked, such as ferns and foxgloves, to green our urban spaces and positively impact the overall health and wellbeing of our communities.
