RHS Tatton Park kicked off on Wednesday with a member’s only day, and will continue throughout the week with the final day being Sunday. The Key Theme is urban gardening but does feature a “Bus Stop Boulevard” display of six different bus stops that has been created by different communities from Greater Manchester; there is the Pride in Manchester bus stop that is complete with rainbow coloured flowers, and also a Peel Back Time stop that was designed by Salford City Council, Urban Vision and Peel Park showing some of the illustrations of the park that are on display at Salford Museum and Art Gallery.

The butterfly dome provides lots of flowers that help feed the tropical butterflies that have a temporary house in the dome, free to fly around and interact with people who enter the dome. There will also be a display of the butterfly lifecycle for people to listen and learn from. A family trail is also present this year that will take you to look at four massive bugs, including a bee and a 16ft spider sculpture.
