The Harrogate Flower Show runs twice a year, in April and September.
This autumn’s flower show featured The Blooms Of Deception, a display of floral art inspired by Agatha Christie’s tales of intrigue and suspense, as the show fell on the British author’s birthday.
The show takes place on September 15 to 17 this year and up to 30,000 visitors are expected to attend.
