So Far, So Good...

Things are very busy on the show garden front.  We are getting ready to leave for Chelsea, and packing all our tools.  This promises to be a very challenging project, as we have already had various problems to overcome.  I think that this year is going to be a difficult one in terms of planting, as the weather is not helping us produce show standard plants.  I have had to substitute a rather large number of Alliums for the show, and completely change the scheme for my living roof.  I am also having problems on the Sponsor front, due to credit crunches, which I imagine is a problem for a lot of exhibitors.  But I am sure that everything will come together once we get down there.

Tatton is all starting to pull together, and I have been in contact with the Bath Store to choose the detailing for the outdoor shower.  Also I have been checking up on the plants, that have still got plenty of time to grow.  But my favourite trip this week was to 'The Bigger Plant Company' in Moels, who always supply my trees, and I have selected 8 large specimens for my Show Garden that look fantastic.  I feel very excited now I can see some of the main components of the Show Garden coming together.  Also I have selected some larger shrubs to create the hedge backdrop for my Back to Back Garden.

I am so excited about all these gardens, and can't wait for the show season to get into full swing!!!
