RHS Flower Show at Tatton Park 2006 - Floral Marquee Exhibitors

Many of the UK’s top nurseries and growers will be exhibiting in the Floral Marquee giving visitors the chance to buy new varieties and old favourites.

Barry Watkinson
Barry began pursuing his passion for plants 20 years ago and although never specialised in one species, he likes the challenge of trying new things. What started as a hobby turned into a thriving business, and he now grows tender and hardy plants for containers.

Bridgend Nurseries

Sarah Clark, the proprietor, ended a long-standing job as a probation officer to run the nursery full time. Specialises in lavenders, but also grows basils, mints, bergamots and rhubarb. This is the first time in the Floral Marquee at Tatton and will be showcasing some varieties not seen at shows before, including Echinacea purpurea ‘Green Eyes’ and Echinacea purpurea ‘Razzmatazz’.

The nursery has a good reputation for herbaceous plants, and regularly host events for the RHS Regional Development Programme.

Jacqueline Iddon Hardy Plants
