Well that’s Chelsea Flower Show over for another year and now we have to look forward to the Hampton Court show which is in July. Here are some of my favourite gardens from Chelsea 2012.
Best Artisan Garden I love this one because of the planting. Acers are my favourite small trees.
I voted for the Bronte Garden in the small garden category and it won. It’s my kind of garden because I love all the stone, the burn running through it and the semi wild planting. It’s the sort of garden which would attract loads of wildlife.
I’m never madly keen on the big show gardens, they nearly always seem cold and clinical to me, don’t ask me why, maybe it’s because the structures tend to be the most important things in them and often there are hardly any plants at all.
One thing that I do lust after is that 1950s caravan. Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing to have at the bottom of your garden! The photo is taken from blog.lauraashley.com.
