Flower show with a difference

Visitors and residents in London will be able to take in the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Floral Celebration at the Inner Temple next month.

The celebration is part of the 2008 Temple festival and takes place between September 11th and September 13th.

It is the first time the RHS will be represented in Inner Temple in almost a century.

The last time the gardens hosted and RHS show was in 1911, but now the Society returns with a selection of specialist exhibitors.

The National Association of Flower Arranging Societies will also make a selection of arrangements at the Temple Church in what should be an exciting event for fans of horticulture.

RHS experts will be giving advice to gardeners keen to pick up tips and ideas for their own gardens, while visitors will also be able to buy flowers and seeds, enabling them to literally take their ideas home.

Foxgloves, Dahlias, agapanthus and passiflora are just some of the many flowers set to be used in the display.

Tickets are selling out fast and RHS shows organiser Bob Sweet told The Independent "Its going to be a tea-on-the-lawn type of event; small and very select."
