Emma Hibbert from Adnams said the Happy and Glorious pub garden

Our garden was inspired by the many celebrations for the Queen's 90th birthday.

'The garden party and British pub are two quintessentially British traditions and we have brought them together at Sandringham Flower Show,' she said.

'The pub is so often at the hub of its community and the place where people join together for a variety of occasions. What better way to show glory and splendour than through the beauty of flowers and gardens in a pub setting where the public can celebrate with friends and family.

'This garden combines the expertise of two East Anglian family businesses; Adnams and Notcutts. From supplying plants to the Royal Household to creating commemorative beers, both companies have a passion for all things Royal.'
