GYO Citrus at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show

Plants4Presents are excited to be back at Hampton Court
with a colourful Grow your Own Citrus display for 2016.

Their display will be one of several edible themed displays in the new Cook & Grow Marquee and will focus on how easy it is to grow citrus in the UK and highlight some of the new hardier varieties available.

Mature specimen trees will provide a fruity backdrop for a Mediterranean style courtyard with over 25 different varieties of citrus displayed in fruit and flower, from the striking variegated varieties to the fragrant yuzu and finger limes that have become so popular with chefs.

Over the last 12 years, Plants4Presents have become established as citrus specialists and mother and daughter team, Isobel and Emily Rae are delighted to create their first display at Hampton focussing purely on citrus trees.

Back in 2004, when they first launched the Plants4Presents website the calamondin was one of the very first plants they offered for sale, so this variety will have a special place in the display.

For more information, images of the build or to arrange a meeting on site on Press day please contact Emily Rae on 01825 721162 or by email emily@4presents.co.uk
