Flowers at RHS Malvern Spring Festival 2024

Flowers at RHS Malvern Spring Festival 2024

With warm sunshine for the RHS Malvern Spring Festival the flowers really shone at the show, these are some of our favourites at Garden Photography Gallery.

With a very early spring this year in the UK and mild winter, Dahlias were in flower at the show, you know our love of Dahlias and this pretty 'Starburst Pink' really caught our eye.

Another favourite plant of ours at Garden Photography Gallery are Clematis and we loved this 'Hyde Hall' flower which was pure and dreamy.


On the show gardens Cirsium rivulare Atropurpureum are always a firm favourite and here paired with Aquilegia 'Black Barlow' on the Gold medal winning, Best Show garden and Best Construction, Graduate Gardeners 'Cotswold Garden' designed by Mark Draper, would make a great combination in most gardens.

The Perennial's Laskett Garden designed by David Wyndham Lewis had some beautiful planting including these firm favourites Geum 'Totally Tangerine' growing amongst the Hosta's.

Also spotted on the Laskett garden was Euphorbia 'Miners Merlot', which is now going to feature in our own garden.

 Who doesn't like Iris 'Kent Pride' a stalwart of Chelsea Flower Show, seen I think for the first time at Malvern in a show garden. This was on the Gold Medal winning 'It Doesn't Have to Cost The Earth' garden designed by Michael Lote and grown by Nadine Charlton of Home Spring Gardens who project managed and helped make the garden happen at Malvern.

Another dark beauty we saw at the show was this Aeonium 'Velour', with succulents on trend this would make a great addition to your garden, though it needs winter protection, so ideal to be grown in a pot.

Dark and moody, Papaver 'Black Paeony' hit the mark with us, in fact we can't believe we've not seen this poppy before.

We've not seen Mecenopsis Sheldonii at Malvern for a few years but there were plenty of them this year looking rather resplendent.

Finally another beautiful poppy, Papaver 'Ladybird' backlit against a bright clear sky, showing off it's black markings is a plant worth investing in a packet of seeds for your garden.

Dark and dusky plants really caught our eye this year at Malvern and of course romantic pinks too. Would you like to see any of these as photography prints in the shop, let us know.

Keep an eye out too for our RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024 highlights, only a week to go before it opens to the public.
