Three Quilted Velvet show gardens in one summer! It did seem like a tall order back in the autumn of 2008 and believe me it has been extremely hard work. I have only had two days off since March and it’s starting to show!

However, despite the stress it’s been a fantastic experience made all the better by having in Quilted Velvet, probably the best sponsor in the history of flower shows. Thanks also goes to my Hortus infinitus team who have built and planted all the gardens to such a high standard and tolerated, mostly with a smile, my eccentricities.

It has been great to end with a gold at Tatton Park but also to finish our campaign in such a wonderful setting and surrounded by so many enthusiastic, friendly and helpful people. Many thanks also to the RHS show’s team for all their support and encouragement throughout the summer.

I wish you all a soft, quilty and velvety winter and perhaps we will see you again next year.
