Romance in the Garden was the inspiration for this year’s sumptuous gardens, eye-popping displays and stimulating programming. Whether found in the fairytale elegance of a royal garden or the sleek and sexy site of a modern meet up, scenes of love and passion (for both people and plants) bloomed in the show landscapes and floral designs.
