Cheshire Traders Bloom
We recently took a trip to Knutsford where we found some extraordinary floral displays.
The Traders of Knutsford in Cheshire were recently given a challenge by one of their own members. Due to the close proximity of the town to the site of the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show Peter Murray, Managing Director of Pulse of Perfumery in Princess Street, thought the town was missing out on promoting itself to the tens of thousands of visitors passing by on their way to the show.
 
After some encouragement thirty five businesses have created their own stunning floral features outside their premises. Many of the floral themes are based on the business activities carried out on the premises. The RHS have also encouraged the initiative by sending a team of judges down to pick the top display and the President will be presenting awards. 

Here are just a few of the unique displays to give a taste of what you could see if you visit the town during the time of the RHS show.

The Gardening Times will be catching up with Peter in the next few weeks to discover more about this subject that is so reliant on flower plants from around the world.
