B&Q At RHS Hampton Court

B&Q brings the busy lizzie back at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show

RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show is set to get a little bit brighter, and a lot bit busy-er in July 2018, as B&Q unveils its spectacular ‘Bursting Busy Lizzie Garden’ at the esteemed floral event from 3 – 8 July 2018.


The Design

Designed by acclaimed garden designer Matthew Childs, 'B&Q's Bursting Busy Lizzie Garden' champions the return of the beloved busy lizzie to B&Q, after it vanished from shelves in 2012 following an outbreak of impatients downy mildew.

'B&Q's Bursting Busy Lizzie Garden' has been created in homage to the beloved annual plant, which is now exclusively back at B&Q and more resistant to the disease than ever before.

Busy lizzies are also known as ‘impatiens’, meaning ‘impatient’, which refers to the way the plant’s seed head bursts open.

Visitors can experience B&Q’s garden bursting with busy lizzies planted in a contemporary tropical style that challenges perceptions of them being a traditional annual bedding plant.

We are delighted that 'B&Q's Bursting Busy Lizzie Garden' has been awarded RHS Gold Medal, the Tudor Rose Award for Best Show Garden and Best Construction Award.
