The Harrogate Spring Flower Show in pictures

The glorious bedroom at The GREENhouse – like Titania’s bower.

Wind, cold, and occasional rain, could not dampen spirits last Sunday, when my mum and I went to the Harrogate Spring Flower Show.
Mum turned out to be a pro at doing flower shows. I thought she was a bit bonkers when she produced this bright green plastic box on wheels thing, a plant trolley, but when we got there, hundreds of other people were wheeling them along too, and packing them with plants and garden bits and bobs.

Huge heavenly tulips at the Spring Flower Show.

We went a bit mad, actually. My mum bought lots of plants and bought me a rusted hanging bird feeder and three rusted huge ornamental leaves (I’ll post them when I’ve sorted out my garden). And I treated myself to a cast iron naked lady (classical, of course).

Who needs to wash anyway? The bathroom at The GREENhouse exhibit.

Anyway, we especially loved The GREENhouse, where plants and flowers took over rooms to create a crazy house filled with colour and texture. I’m going to let the pictures do the talking. The whole of Harrogate seemed to get involved, especially The Ivy, where florist extraordinaire Helen James decorated the doorway most decadently and gorgeously. The town is packed with flowers at the moment. And the cherry blossom is finally blooming on The Stray.

Helen James dressed The Ivy Harrogate doorway so beautifully.

I’m already looking forward to the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show, which takes place September 14-16 at the Great Yorkshire Showground. Tickets on sale now here: https://www.flowershow.org.uk/

The lovely living room in The GREEHhouse.

Primary school children decorated and furnished doll’s houses, like this one.

I believe this is Phlox. It’s very pretty, whatever it is.

    The GREENhouse is fantastic – like something out of a children’s book, or a dream! I have yet to make it to any of the flower shows in Harrogate, as I am usually in Yorkshire too late for the spring and too early for the autumn show, but one year…!
