The show gets underway on Wednesday, 20 July

The Royal Horticultural Society Tatton Park Flower Show 2022 takes place later this month, and welcomes garden enthusiasts from around the country.

Taking place in Cheshire, the show is one of the highlights of the summer flower show calendar.

Here’s all you need to know about the show, including what will happen and how you can get tickets.

When is the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show?

The 2022 edition of the flower show takes place across five days, from Wednesday 20 to Sunday 24 July.

The show is open from 10am to 5pm each and every day.

What is on the line-up for the 2022 show?

The RHS website outlines that “Inspirational garden ideas, beautiful planting combinations and the latest innovative landscaping trends are to be found at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park where colourful gardens await discovery.”

A new addition to the 2022 show is the Greener Front Gardens category, which has new schemes for adding colour and style, no matter how small your plot of land is.

Dozens of garden displays will be on show throughout the week, with designs from several groups including BBC Radio Gardens and Greener Front Gardens.

For the full line-up of garden displays, visit the RHS website.

What other events will take place at the show?

As well as the garden displays, you can also be entertained by a series of talks, workshops, and music.

One of the workshops planned is ‘Practical Gardening’ by Arit Anderson.

A teaser for the show reads: “Don’t miss the opportunity to learn new green-fingered skills and improve your gardening and floral know-how from our expert speakers.

“Head to the theatre to be inspired by broadcaster Arit Anderson, be wowed by celebrity floral designer Jonathan Moseley as he explores floral delights, and hear from the ‘Twitter king of big veg’ Gerald Stratford.”

A dedicated bandstand will see several music groups perform throughout the show

A festival spokesperson said: “Be entertained by a host of professional musicians at the show’s Bandstand.

“Boogie to 1950s-style rock ‘n’ roll from Razor Holler, see trio of starlets The Femmes bring the glory of the 1940s to life and listen to western swing from Rip-Roaring Success.”

The full line-up and timetable of these events can be found on the Tatton Park Flower Show page of the RHS website

How can I get to the show from Manchester?

The show organisers have outlined information on how attendees can get to the show, with car and train suggested to be the easiest modes of transport.

By Car

Routes to the show are signposted on all major roads in the area. Due to changes associated with the newly opened A556 your route to the show may be different this year. Please follow the yellow and black show signs and not your satnav as this will minimise delays entering and exiting the show.

The drop-off point for cars and taxis is the Rostherne Gate.

Parking

There is ample parking within the grounds of Tatton Park, free of charge. You will be directed to an appropriate car park on arrival. All car parks are open from 8am, and close one hour after the show closes.

Parking on the roads around the showground is strictly prohibited.

Train

Metrolink trams provide a great way to get to the showground for the show.

Travel by tram from any Metrolink stop to Altrincham where a free shuttle bus operates to and from the show running every 20 minutes.
