Hampshire Carnivorous Plants was awarded one of the 52 gold medals distributed among the 90 exhibitors in what visitors and exhibitors described as the "breathtaking new marquee."

Moved to border the long water and housed in a new 200 metre long single structure marquee, the exhibits were shown off to full effect in bright, airy and easy to navigate conditions.

Heucherholics owner Sean Atkinson said: "The overall effect of the new marquee is really good.  Its pretty much based like Tatton where we are forcing people around and back up again so hopefully there are no dead spots and every body will do good business."

Jacques Amand International picked up the most creative exhibit award in the Floral Marquee.
