We discuss the two RHS shows in July this year, the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and the Tatton Park flower show. We also feature an interview with the award winning garden designer Chris Beardshaw who exhibited his third show garden of the year at Hampton Court, winning another Gold medal for his trophy cabinet.
Plant of the Month - 16' 38"
Out plant of the month for August is Helenium 'Moerheim Beauty', also known as Helen's flower. This herbaceous perennial has an upright habit growing up to 1m tall and 0.5m spread.
They are hardy, need full sun and good drainage and make excellent cut flowers.
