Hi All, with just a week to go, it was time to mock up half of the stand on the lawn.
First job was to mark out half the stand on the ground to see the area to be ‘planted’.
Next was to carry down delphiniums and supporting cast to fill in the space. The pictures below show the build with 7 delph plants in place. Right now, there are maybe 22 delphiniums that might make the journey up to Chelsea – the vast majority have now left the safety of the greenhouse, with their pots buried to stop the wind doing its worst. Fingers crossed they don’t get blown to bits or open up too much. The first pic shows my gardener and a side on view of the stand. The second picture shows the view the public will see – front on.
A final shot especially for Jean – these are the plastic nursery crates that we will use to construct the storage at the back of the stand – they can comfortably go four tiers high.
Fingers remaining firmly crossed for the next week. All the best, Mark.
