As we are nearing the final weekend before Hampton Court opens, the garden is really taking shape. Plants have begun to arrive and are being laid out to plant.

The Olive trees have now been planted with the vibrant purple of the lavender surrounding them.

The garden features a whole range of crops and flowers which can be used as a source of food or drink, and the vineyard is no exception! It is hard to believe that these vines were bare a few months ago, but are now thriving in the Hampton Court sun.

The man made pond has begun to settle, the lillies and reeds have now been planted and the willow is almost touching the surface as it leans over the the water.

I will be at Hampton Court on Friday for my final update before the show. For ticket information visit theĀ RHS Website.
