Rocking Dog At Chelsea Flower Show.

I was incredibly fortunate to be given a last minute free pass to Chelsea Flower Show yesterday. I had a truly amazing time and the weather was absolutely gorgeous.

Having never been to the show before, I was rather like an excited child in a sweetie shop. A particular highlight for me was the wonderful L’Occitane show garden
“A Perfumers Garden in Grasse”. I could really imagine myself sitting down amongst those olive trees, soothed by the smell of Lavender and herbs in the dry heat of Provence. Of course seeing the garden in baking sunshine really helped with that visualisation.

I also loved a greenhouse trade stand (Alitex) styled with vegetable pottagers, cold frames and dramatic purple hue flower planting. I especially adored the greenhouse with slipper bath and a seemingly endless trailing Stephanotis.

Trends seem to be for lots of foxgloves, cow parsley, and generally quite wild un-manicured planting. Yippee! There’s hope for my garden yet!

Have a lovely weekend and happy gardening!
