Hi, hope you’re all enjoying this nice weather? Our garden certainly is with everything growing apace to make up for such a cold spring and early summer.
Well, the Chelsea Flower Show now seems about a light year ago and I have to say the post show blues kicked in pretty much as soon as the stand had been taken apart. It was bad enough taking apart our ‘creation’ and selling off many of the supporting plants – still, there’s always next year to look forward to. Ahhh, then of course there is the Romsey Show in September where Anne and I have decided to build a small garden stand with a mixed planting of all things autumnal. With any luck there will be a good number of second flowering delphiniums to put on show.
An added bonus from Chelsea is that those plants that were not ready in time are in the greenhouse and just begging to be hybridised – you can probably see some missing eyes if you look carefully in the photo. Next time I’ll give you an update on the Romsey show prep.All the best, Mark.
