The incredibly popular Blenheim Palace Flower Show will make a welcome return this summer from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 June.
It’s the perfect place for visitors to discover their favourite plants, speak with gardening experts and enthusiasts, enjoy fabulous food and drink and uncover an array of gardening goodies from hundreds of exhibitors.
Featuring more stands than ever, this year’s show will welcome the return of the outdoor ‘floral street’, incredible inside floral displays and live music throughout the weekend.
“It’s wonderful to be returning to Blenheim Palace; it’s the perfect place to stage a flower show,” said Mig Kimpton, horticultural curator for the Blenheim Palace Flower Show.
“I enjoy working within the stunning estate and engaging with all the plantsmen,” he added. “Whether you’re a professional floral enthusiast or someone who wants to give their home and garden some tender loving care, the Blenheim Palace Flower Show is the perfect mix of inspiration and creation.”
A riot of colour, fragrance and weird and beautiful plants, the 20,000 square foot Grand Floral Pavilion will be the show’s centrepiece and feature the UK’s finest nurseries and growers giving expert advice and gardening ideas.
Back by popular demand, Floral Street is set to be bigger than ever before, creating an area that welcomes exhibitors to display their plants in unique ways. The area will be creatively decorated, creating the perfect place to explore and linger as you decide which plants to buy.
Plantsmen and experts will be on hand to give tips and advice on all gardening issues, and visitors will be able to purchase plants from their nurseries directly at the show.
To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies will be staging a competition at this year’s show.
Titled ‘Jewels in the Crown’, competitors from the Berks, Bucks and Oxon area of NAFAS will compete in five competitive floral art classes hoping to win the Best in Show Trophy 2022.
There will also be a range of new and inspiring Show Gardens at this year’s show – all built from scratch in the showground by experienced garden designers. The best garden will be awarded the Blenheim Show Garden Award 2022.
Plus, visitors will be able to unload any heavy bags or goods at the show’s dedicated ‘Plant Creche’ throughout the weekend without returning to their cars.
The Blenheim Palace Flower Show will run from 10.00am to 5.00pm on Friday 24, Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 June 2022, on the grounds of Blenheim Palace.
There are a broad variety of ticket options to suit any day-out; your visit to the Blenheim Palace Flower Show may also include a tour of the Palace or Parks and Gardens – or even both.
