I’ve been absorbed by The Chelsea Flower Show during this last week, now that it’s all over, I wanted to share some of my highlights of the Show.
The Paradise Garden, designed by Cleve West for M&G Investments, was the first one I saw when I arrived.
I always like the detail at the back of his show gardens, this time there were a pair of standard-shaped grapevines in containers set against a backdrop of dark green Yew.
The Laurent Perrier garden, designed by Luciano Guibelei, had Beech shrubs in loose, round shapes rather than usual tightly clipped Yew.
I loved the display of Amarylis (Hippeastrum) in the marquee by the WS Warmenhoven nursery, such a variety of colours, I’ll be sure to plant some of these bulbs in October.
These are fabulous contrasting colours, Iris sibirica and Trollius Dancing Flame on Hardys Cottage Garden Plants stand.
The Big Green Egg stand designed by Nicola Harding was very eye-catching. It had a long, curvy, table that would be perfect for a big gathering of friends.
For more garden ideas, these are my other posts about the Show:
