Garden writer Alys Fowler and designers Ann-Marie Powell and Andy Sturgeon join Monty Don, Joe Swift and Rachel de Thame at this year's RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
The event has a countryside theme and so Andy Sturgeon looks at the best cottage garden plants on offer, while Ann-Marie is on the trail of must-have flowers for scent. Monty and Joe also take a look at the show gardens inspired by the Great British countryside, while Rachel discovers what makes 2013's Rose of the Year a winner.
Designing with roses
The subtle, faded tones from old English rose Café perfectly compliment the statuesque perennial foxglove, Digitalis mertonensis and powder-blue catmint Nepeta nervosa.
A riot of colour
Create a riot of colour with the vibrant red rose Roundelay surrounded by the sunshine colours of Gaillardia Arizona Apricot.
Contrasting vertical accents
Use vertical accents like Astilbe Deutschland and deep blue-purple lupin Gallery Blue to contrast with low-growing polyantha rose Little White Pet.
