The Show is all set up and ready for the opening tomorrow, but today it was the turn of the Press, invited guests and celebreties to have a look round.
This is one of the ‘low cost high impact gardens’.
Designed by Mike Harvey and built for a budget of £13,000.
The chairs are made out of dismantled wooden pallets.
The glass bubbles suspended from the pergola are tea-lights.
The blue plant is Eryngium, it’s happiest planted in a sun in well-drained soil.
Dosn’t it look good with the dark lavender and daisies.
This is Contemporary Contemplation, one of the bigger show gardens.
The ornamental grasses (Stipa tenuissima) waft about beautifully in the breeze.
The tall white flowers are agapanthus.
The green and white colour scheme is very cool and restful isn’t it.
I had such a good time, it was so nice to meet up with some old friends and say hello to people that I’ve only ‘spoken’ to on twitter.
I also met some lovely designers…… more about that in the next post.
