Westminster Stone are proud to once again collaborate with Alitex at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival. The stand this year featured our Honey Cathedral paving and Jacobean Brick Pavers to create a chic and rustic setting. Complete with raised beds and garden accessories from A Place in the Garden.

The RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival this year is extra special after a year of lockdowns. The show reflects these changing times with the importance of our gardens and their effects on our wellbeing taking centre stage, with a focus on allotments. Here are some of the highlights from this year's show...

Grow Your Own @ RHS Hampton Court

Allotments are becoming increasingly popular with the desire to connect back to nature, grow your own organic produce, fill the home with hand-cut flowers and be part of a community. This mindful and nourishing activity has gained a bigger space at this years Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival. With soil experts and water specialists on hand to offer advice on starting up or existing issues, there is something for everyone. Keep an eye out for the RHS community brain installation named 'Crop Up' featuring large wheelie bins filled with wildflowers and crops.

Garden Trends for 2021

The RHS shows are a brilliant way to spot upcoming garden trends. This year has emphasised ways to fit in beautiful trees and shrubs in short spaces without compromising on light. Opting for well-pruned trees, turning trees into topiary mounds and introducing multi-stemmed trees seem to be the most popular.
