2009 was the 180th anniversary of the 10 acre Philadelphia Flower Show – America’s first flower show. It attracts 250,000 visitors (RHS Chelsea Flower Show draws 157,000) a year. Which got me wondering: Where are the best flower shows in the world?
As well as Hampton Court and Tatton park in the UK, there are shows in Melbourne, Japan, The Netherlands, West Indies, Canada and South Africa, among other places. But which is the best?
