Royal Horticultural Shows


Welcome to my account of our foray into a brave new world, one full of so many different things – intense competition, masses of rules and regulations, worry, frustration, joy, excitement, pride, passion, stress….. need I continue.

Back in January 2006 when the application forms for Cardiff RHS show were being filled in (our first attempt at any show other than the local ones), little did I know that less than ten months later we would be invited to Chelsea RHS 2007 On the way there we would pick up two gold medals and two ‘best in shows’ from RHS Cardiff, Hampton Court and Tatton Park – all this at our first attempt.

It is with a sense of humility, yet great pride that I write these pages.

First and foremost I would like to thank all the staff involved in what turned out to be such a mammoth task.

Just a few photos below to give you a taster.
