TATTON will be transported to the Land of Oz.

There is just over a month to go until the return of RHS Tatton Park Flower Show.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the event and to celebrate an Emerald City Garden has been created, taking inspiration from L. Frank Baum’s ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’.

Simon Tetlow, head gardener, said: “It echoes the central theme in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz which is the journey to reach a personal sanctuary, like home, while also exemplifying the mental health benefits of a green environment and how it is possible to incorporate this into an urban space however small using what you have available.

“With this in mind, the garden will feature familiar luscious emerald greenhouse plants, together with Cyathea, Dicksonia, ferns, mosses, Bromeliad and Tillandsias, building an oasis of calm, an escape room that resets the spirits and transports the visitor to a place where imagination and horticulture combine to create magic, a sanctuary of tranquillity where you can feel refreshed, rebuilt and restored to face the next day.”

Baum’s fairytale masterpiece has been thrilling readers and viewers for 124 years.

As well as paying homage to the tale, the Emerald City Garden will also explore the benefits of spending time in green spaces within an urban environment.

The garden will be reminiscent of Tatton’s fernery, designed in the late 1850s by Joseph Paxton and home to New Zealand tree ferns brought back by Captain Charles Randle Egerton from one of his voyages.

The display at the Flower Show, which runs from July 17 to 21, is just the first taste of Oz for visitors to Tatton.

Come Christmas, the historic manor will be transformed into a festive journey.

Staterooms will be decorated, unveiling new surprises at every turn from the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City.

The Journey to Oz will open on select dates between November 23 and December 29.
