It has been a whirlwind the last few days as we’ve gotten ourselves ready at the RHS Chelsea Flower show. There has been a lot going on as people get their displays ready and their plants and flowers planted. Here are some behind the scenes snaps of what goes on before everyone comes to visit.

We’ve got our display all put together above and are really pleased with our plants, they are looking absolutely gorgeous! Just hope the judges like it now!

It’s a great atmosphere already around here, hope to see some of you over the week. Don’t forget, we are in the Great Pavilion if you want to pop by!

At the Nursery – Getting ready for RHS Chelsea Flower Show

pg2

Our own garden is looking lovely this time of year, it’s a shame we don’t get to spend more time in it lately! We’ve been busy potting plants (as you can see in the photo below) and making sure everything is just right for next weeks RHS Chelsea flower show.pg5

Delta Dawn is pictured above, all ready to go into our flower display at Chelsea, and you can see Heuchera Thomas peeking through behind it.pg4

Our nursery plants are coming along nicely, pictured above is Tiarella Skeleton Key looking lovely and we’ve now potted our tiarella Emerald Ellie which should be beautiful by Hampton Court.

Brunnera Golden frost pictured above will soon be coming to our website, so keep an eye out for it!pg3

Geranium Expresso is starting to look good in the nursery now, and this little white flowered plant is Phlox May Breeze which is also coming to the website soon. pg1

All these beauties will be coming with us to the Chelsea Flower show, so we’ve been making sure they are well misted, with Richard ensuring the sprinklers are working when we want them to be!

Our next updates will be from RHS Chelsea Flower show, how quick has that come around! We hope to see some of you there, come find us in the Great Pavilion!

The start of our Malvern Show prep saw us in with snow and hail in our garden! Can you even believe it? Luckily we had great weather for most of the weekend to make up for it. Here are some photos if you weren’t able to make it.
