    The start of the build always feels like you can't really do much, or that you are not really going as fast as you would like - but in fact you are getting all the really important and necessary things done.  The things that you won't even see, but they have to be there.

    We have been building our walls, which are quite complicated as we have Ivy panels being set into them.  I have been to Congleton today to collect the ivy and the walls have been built around the panels

    Today was the first time we actually stood on our plot.  Looking around the site, there is already lots of activity and I got the feeling it is going to be a fantastic show.  There are lots of familiar faces looking very fresh and raring to go.  We have scraped the surface layer off our plot and marked out ready for tomorrow.  Today has mostly been putting the finishing touches together on certain parts of the scheme ready for loading the vehicles for tomorrow.  I have just finished putting the wood into the van and packed the pick up with tools ready for a very early start tomorrow.  I am constantly keeping an eye on the plants and Cathrine (my supplier) is doing her normal, fantastic job of sending me photos of all the plants so I really can keep tabs on everything whilst at the show.

    Well I think an early night is in order ready for the week ahead!

    Part of me is envious of the Show Gardens starting to build this weekend, as I am normally there, first in the queue to get in!  Yet the other part is quite happy that we have another week to just finalise any last minute details and get prepared to take the garden to Tatton.

    This week has been confirmation time - all orders have been checked and product details confirmed.  I have had lots of meetings with various people, where we have pieced together parts of the garden to ensure that everything is going to plan
