They are now becoming established.

Sonia Mermagen, press and communications officer for Thompson & Morgan, said: “The garden already looks amazing and it will obviously fill out and become more established and colourful as the summer goes on.

“The Floral Fantasia event is running from now through until the end of September.”

RHS Garden Hyde Hall head of site, Ian Le Gros, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Floral Fantasia to Hyde Hall for the first time and it’s been great to work with Thompson & Morgan on this project. It will provide a dazzling display during the summer months and will surely inspire novice and seasoned gardeners, both old and young, to have a go at growing themselves.

“Bedding plants are simple to grow and add instant impact to your garden be it in baskets and pots or as gap-fillers for your border, so by the time our visitors have seen the display, they will hopefully go home buzzing with ideas for their own gardens.”

The plant and seed company, established since 1855 won both first and third places at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, for Plant of the Year 2018.
