Leeds is a city which is home to fabulous blooms for many months of the year, but two key flower events occur in August.
The largest event is the Leeds Flower, Vegetable and Craft Show held at Leeds Grammar School. Organised by the city’s Horticultural Society Committee, the show will celebrate its 150th birthday this year. It includes gardening classes, talks by experts and trade stands as well as live bands and an ice cream seller to keep everybody cool.
Also taking place in August is the Shadwell Flower Show. Here you will see well-decorated borders, pretty perennials and beautiful bouquets. There is also a tombola, licensed bar and live entertainment. Entry is £6 for adults, £5 for senior citizens and free for under 16s.
The wider Leeds district is home to some of the UK’s best known gardeners and florists.
The flamboyant Carl Wilde is a proud Leodensian and runs his own garden with eatery and gift boutique around seven miles south of the city centre. The garden has been designed to have an Italian feel with an English twist. It features fountains and ponds on its terraces as well as classic topiary shades and terracotta urns.
Another local is Alan Titchmarsh. Hailing from nearby Ilkley, he is arguably the most famous gardener in Britain and in the past two decades he has extended his green fingers into broadcasting and writing works of fiction.
As the biggest city in Yorkshire, Leeds is associated with white roses. Originally, the flower was the symbol of the House of York alone, but over time it has been adopted by the whole of the county and features on Leeds United’s badge.
