There are many clubs and societies in Lancashire devoted to growing and arranging flowers, and just as many people eager to see the fruits of their labours.
One of the most popular flower events in Lancashire is the Southport Flower Show in August. Open all day between the 14th and 17th, come here to take a stroll around their magnificent show gardens, receive advice on growing flowers from experts, admire floral art and creative designs, and participate in flower arranging workshops and competitions.
Another large event is The Great Eccleston Show in July. While not specifically geared toward flowers, this celebrated agricultural fair on the Fylde coast still has several marquees dedicated to the exhibition of floral art and creative arranging.
"Did you know we deliver to Anchorsholme, Burn Naze, Cleveleys, Knott End-on-Sea, Preesall, Preesall Park, Stalmine, Stalmine Moss Side, Thornton and Trunnah?"
Lancashire is also host to a number of smaller, more intimate events, such as I Can See a Rainbow and My Secret Garden, held in June and September respectively, and both hosted by The West Lancashire Flower Club in Southport.
Historically, Lancashire has been associated with the Red Rose of Lancaster, which the 1st Earl of Lancaster made the flower and emblem of the county in the wake of the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485. The rose can be seen throughout Lancashire nowadays, often on a white or yellow background, and although the exact cultivar depicted is unknown, it is generally understood to be Rosa gallica officinalis (Gallic or French rose, also known as the Rose of Provins).
After the War of the Roses ended in 1495, the House of Tudor adopted the Lancastrian red rose, along with the white rose insignia of Yorkshire, as an emblem of unity.
The Myerscough College Gardens and Plant World, for instance give visitors access to a wealth of horticultural beauty and variety, allowing them to peer into a world of tropical and exotic flowers, as well as all the foliage of the temperate zones.
The Southport Botanic Gardens, meanwhile, nicknamed ""The Jewel in the Crown"" for its cherished displays, has been a hit with flower enthusiasts since it was opened in 1875. Highlights include the imposing glass conservatory (or fernery), which houses tropical flowers, and the Botanic Gardens Museum, established in collaboration with the famous Victorian showman, P. T. Barnum.
