firstly i want to say thank you to edwards coaches, as i wouldn’t have been able to go to rhs cardiff without the tickets i won on their twitter!
rhs cardiff was located in bute park, which, if you don’t know it, is the park that runs behind and alongside cardiff castle. as i said, i won a pair of tickets and laura (and her lovely children) from side street style joined me on the saturday date. of course i would have enjoyed such an event by myself, but anything like this is always better with someone!
anyone that knows me even a little knows i love flowers and nature. a lot. i was completely obsessed as a child, and that obsession has carried on into childhood. i used to particularly love going to garden centres and farmers markets with my grandparents as a child. i still have a book about animal and natural wildlife my nan ‘made’ me. it’s one of very few things from my childhood i have. i should share it some day!
i really loved walking around outside, as well as in the two big marquees. the variety of displays was good, and there was a nice mix of more ‘put together’ ones and ones with a more natural feel to them, like you would have in your garden for example.
dotted around, there were spots you could buy flowers, cacti, seeds, bulbs and more. it was nice to see people rifling through seed packets like others would with vinyls, and picking out bulbs in the garden version of pick ‘n’ mix!
i would most definitely recommend rhs cardiff to anyone that wants to visit next year, whether you’re big on flowers or not. a good day for anyone of any age!
