Once we got all the plants where wanted them, it was just a matter of filling them in and making sure our moss was as perfect as it could be.

This past weekend Richard held down the tent at RHS Harlow Carr flower show while Vicky came back to the nursery to pack up orders to be shipped and get ready for BBC Gardeners World Live this coming weekend.

Super busy around these parts, but we wouldn’t have it any other way! Here’s a few snaps from the Harlow Carr show if you weren’t able to make it.

From our stand you can see the steps up to the wood on the other side of the stream. Lots of great plants with some amazing foliage.

Looking over our colourful plants you can see the bit where the stream runs along the wood.
