It’s hard to say what was most wonderful about the RHS Show at Tatton Park this week. The park itself; the large show gardens in an almost explosive range of styles from country-garden conventional to contemporary statement; the smaller back to back gardens, or the vibrant floral displays.

But there is no real need to define it. It is simply an excellent day out and amazingly the weather is of little consequence as there are plenty of marquees to explore in a downpour. A mass for the children to do – and this year they go free!

Find and enjoy the Joy Division inspired garden (I managed to miss it somehow – it’s a big show); and make sure you vote for the most unsightly flora. The search is on for The World’s Ugliest Plant. Most of all just enjoy it.

10am - 6.30pm Saturday
10am - 5pm Sunday
