As European Capital of Culture 2009, Liverpool revamped its relationship with the arts with new projects improving fine art, film, and flower design and floristry throughout the city. Although a long standing holder of major flower shows, events and festivals, the city now attracts more visitors than ever interested in the art of flower design and arranging, and its flower festivals received a new intake of attendees willing to get involved in flower design.
Southport Flower Show is a staple in the flower design calendar - every year it attracts over 70,000 visitors including florists, botanists, horticulturalists, hobbying gardeners and the general public. It's the largest independent flower show in the United Kingdom, with exhibitors ranging from landscapers and flower designers, to farmers and vegetable specialists. Each year is centred around a particular theme, and this year, to match the FIFA World Cup, the theme is Brazil.
Much smaller than its Southport counterpart, Knowlsey Flower Show is still a major event in the flower design calendar, and this year enters its 16th year. With around four hundred exhibits including show gardens, flower design, floristry, woodcutting, animal displays and cooking demonstrations, it covers all aspects of gardening in the United Kingdom. Running in August, the highlights from last year included a giant craft marquee, a food market and a dog show.
As European Capital of Culture the gardens and flower areas of interest in the city received more funding, patronage and interest. With gardens and green spaces scattered throughout the city, and more in its leafy suburbs, you are never too far away from beautiful flowerbeds and stunning landscaping - here are some of the best on offer.
Designed and built to coincide with the International Garden Festival in 1984, Liverpool Festival Gardens is not only a great example of the cities innovative and beautiful garden design, but also its historic relationship to gardening. With over 3.8 million visitors in its thirty year history, the garden is one of Liverpool's most popular - but it hasn't always been this way. Left derelict after the festival, it was not reopened until 1997, and has been home to a whole vast of flowers, plants and trees ever since. It now even has its own resident bird population, which means you can take in the beautiful views, flowerbeds and nature all at the same time.
A Grade 1 listed site by English Heritage, this secret garden is secluded from the rest of the city, and is a real gem for those who can find it. Part garden, part cemetery, St James Gardens' sunken location and obscurity from the rest of the city makes it a tranquil and peaceful place, bathed in the shadows of Liverpool's stunning Anglican Cathedral. A smaller park than the others featured here, it is no less beautiful and perhaps more serene. What is doesn't have in its small variety of plants, flowers and trees, it makes up for in ambience and atmosphere. This is a must visit for those interested in the atmospheric possibilities of flower and garden design.
Sefton Park is a Grade 2 Listed park with over 235 acres of plants, trees, flowers, and great landscaping to enjoy. Located, as you can probably tell by its name, in the Sefton Park district of the city, it provide a beautiful green space for this larger suburban area outside the centre of the city.
Liverpool really is a city of culture, from art and design, to film and theatre, its status as European Capital City of Culture in 2008 has had a profound affect on the arts, including flower art and garden design. If this cities great flowers and gardens have had an affect on you, don't let that go to waste. Ordering flowers online is a great way to give a colleague, friend or loved one the experience of Liverpool's gardens, shows and festivals in their own home.
