The newly renamed RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival takes place this week (2–7 July 2019), and HTA and APL members are once again wowing the crowds and judges with their amazing gardens and displays.
This year was the first time the APL moved away from having a Show Feature garden, to a judged Show Garden. The garden was a true APL community build, with a total of 18 different member companies involved in the garden, including the apprentices currently on the APL Apprenticeship scheme.

Rose of the year award 2020
It is a tradition for the Rose of the year award for the next year to be announced at The Festival of Roses.
The Rose of the Year is selected from trials around the country that run for two years. The winning rose is most likely picked 6 years before you see it, this gives time for growing so it can be widely available.
2020’s Rose of the Year winner is called Sweet Honey 'Kormecaso' from Kordes Rosen of Germany.
