Southport Flower Show

Date: 14/07/15
West Lancashire - Southport

20th - 23rd August 2015

from Victoria Park


Few things in life are as certain as the Southport Flower Show, and after 90 years it's seeds were planted in the coast, it's blossomed into one of the largest and most prestigious horticultural events in the UK.

Running from the 20th - 23rd August this year, over 80,000 visitors are expected to be drawn to the town for what almost seems unfair to describe as a show for flowers.

In previous years we have had Jousting Knights, singing nuns, cooking demonstrations, giant vegetables, food stalls, fabulous show gardens and awe inspiring floral displays, this year's show looks like having more going on than ever before.

In 2011 Jonny and Emma had their work cut out, trying to sample the atmosphere across all 34 acres of Victoria Park on the opening day, but they had expert help from legendary botanist and TV personality David Bellamy OBE, and pop star come Masterchef champion, Liz McClarnon.

Even for the most novice of amature gardener, the arrangements on display proved as bright and breathtaking as ever, on the rare but very welcome sunny day. The 'vintage' theme of this year's show sparked the creation of some fantastic designs, including this 1970s inspired rock-pool garden.
