Perennial plants grown for the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival

Take a little bit if Hampton Court home with you. A range of perennial plants, ideal for the drier garden, are now available to buy. Grown for the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival and selected by renowned landscape designer @tomstuartsmith, these will make a great addition to your garden.

Acclaimed landscape architect @tomstuartsmith @tomstuartsmithstudio is our #RHSHamptonCourt Iconic Horticultural Hero, and has designed a Feature Garden which you’ll be able to see at next year’s show.

In the video below, Tom talks about the climate-resilient planting of meadow perennials he will feature in the display, working with a team of apprentices at @sunnysideruraltrustcharity, a charity offering training and work experience to vulnerable people, who are helping to grow the herbaceous plants for the garden.

Tom also takes you on a tour of his own garden and shares how using contrast between structure and biodiverse, colourful planting has influenced his designs for @rhsbridgewater – our 5th garden which opens in 2021.
