People at the Palace
See some of the people behind the gardens at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, and some familiar faces too.

The 2012 RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show proved once again to be a world class event with plants and products, exhibits and exhibitors travelling from around the world.  The plant displays were dramatic and the show gardens were stimulating with every shape and size and dramatic colours all mixed up to give the annual event its magic.
Without the people there would be no show to see, the following few shots capture some of those who helped make it happen again.
Our thanks to The Royal Horticultural Society for staging another great show, and allowing The Gardening access to the show ground on press day. 

Rob Brydon is usually ‘on the box’; today he was in one, looking at an ocean reef.

You don’t have to be mad to be there but this character found that it really helped!

The lady in pink entertained the crowds despite the strengthening wind and rain.

James Callicott takes a break in his highly detailed and imaginative garden called ’This is Me’ that earned him a bronze medal.

Designer Imogen Cox stands in her garden with the dramatic oak frame from Wiltshire.

This wonderful willow structure was created by Judith Needham, here seen in the show garden called ‘A corner of the World’ designed and built by Clare Olof and Nick Buss.
