Vampire Protection

It's official, it doesn't matter who you are or how much you know about gardening, there's bound to be something to inspire you at this year's Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

As head of Horticultural Advice at the RHS you'd think there wasn't much that would impress Guy Barter. But you'd be wrong.
"I've seen everything at the show," he quips, "and I'm absolutely knocked out by the Growing Tastes Marquee. It's fantastic. The garlic in there is the most extraordinary I've ever seen. I thought I'd had a good year for garlic but their's are about four times the size of mine. And those Marshall's strawberries have resolved me to dig up my own strawberry bed and start again."

The giant garlic is sure to be a showstopper. There are baskets full of freshly harvested bulbs, some complete with flower stems and all ready for use. So whether you are cooking with garlic, using it for medicinal purposes or have a few vampires to banish, head for the Garlic Farm stand in the Growing Taste Marquee.
