Following last week’s RHS Flower Show at Tatton Park, we’ve put together a collection of all the top gardening trends to help you find inspiration to give your outdoor space that show garden feel:

Sheds and garages displayed living roofs, and signs of recycled and reused materials decorated gardens across the show, indicating the practice of sustainable gardening is definitely on the up.
