Situated close to the cultural centre of London and also the Berkshire countryside, Slough is in a great position for flower events, shows, competitions and festivals. There are a number of events happening all year round, and there is always something to interest those with a passion for flowers, plants and trees.
Running with increased participation every year, the Slough in Bloom festival is a community project turned success story. Now in its 21st year, the festival encourages local residents and communities to get involved with gardening and landscaping in their area. The aim of the festival is not only to brighten up the commuter belt, motorways and housing areas of the town, but also engage local residents and businesses with the important of maintaining their environment. With competitions, prizes and prestige at stake, Slough in Bloom is getting stronger every year.
Located just outside the town centre in rural Berkshire, the West Woodhay Festival of Gardening is a major event in the local area and in the rest of the country. Set in the stunning grounds of West Woodhay House, the festival includes the usual competitions and prizes associated with flowers, vegetable growing and gardening. However, it also boasts woodland, a children entertainment section and live music, as well as cooking demonstrations, talks and gardening hints and tips from botanists, horticulturalists, flower designers and florists.
Slough town centre and the surrounding Berkshire countryside have no shortage of parks, gardens and green spaces for those interested in flowers to enjoy. With a variety of spaces from public parks to National Trust reserves, there really is something for everyone. Here are some of the highlights.
Set high above the River Thames with fantastic views of the surrounding area, Cliveden park is a natural wonder. A relic of the Victorian era preserved perfectly, the gardens are decadent, wondrous and full of splendour. The hedged pathways, colourful flowerbeds and ornate topiary throughout are typical of the Victorian style, as are the surrounding woodland and parkland areas, which are also home to a variety of local wildlife. The garden gradually gives way to public open fields and expansive woodland, with orchards and the riverbank beyond. For anyone interested in formal flower arranging, the displays change monthly, with new species, colour and styles introduced with each change.
This 35-acre section of the Windsor Great Park is lightninged for its flowers, plants and trees - home to many national collections of rare and obscure species, this garden is one for the collector or botanist. The highlights of the garden include a rose garden with over 2,500 plants; its grand herbaceous borders and ornate hedges; and the world famous temperature house, which houses many flowers, plants and trees from the national collection of rare and obscure species, including rhododendrons and mahonias.
Another section of the Windsor Great Park, the Valley Garden is one of the most colourful and beautiful areas of the Royal Landscape. Set amongst the Virginia Water lake, it is home to a variety of local wildlife, and some of the most breathtaking natural beauty in the area. The garden boasts hydrangeas, Japanese maples, birches, sweet gums and many more amongst its native species, and with a changing seasonal landscape, can be visited time and time again. If Savill Garden is for the botanist, then The Valley Garden is most definitely one for flower designers, florists and landscapers.
