Chelsea Flower Show 2015 Round Up
Sunday, May 24, 2015
We've had an incredibly inspiring time at RHS Chelsea, one of the best shows so far in fact... there's no way you could see it all or take it all in in just one day, so for those of you who missed out on some of it, here's the best bits of our week there!
Our favourite Chelsea gardensWe loved coming across Sussex locals doing so well at Chelsea, this beautiful garden by The Sussex Trug Makers was so well received, the detail of the Trug workshop garden was exquisite, every item in the garden had a true life purpose, even the steamer really worked! A gold medal very well deserved...

Inside The Retreat GardenWe were very much looking forward to seeing our friend and local garden designer Jo Thompson's garden, we'd followed the build with great interest on Twitter, the icing on the cake was a VIP tour behind the scenes and even inside the iconic wooden building!
The Evaders Garden up close!Another garden that really took our breath away was The Evaders Garden by John Everiss, the real life story behind this garden was fascinating, and the work that went into it immense. We even wrote a whole feature about it- (read the whole story behind the garden here.)
Chilstone Friends & standsWhat a pleasure to see so many of our friends doing so well with their beautiful stands at Chelsea! It was great to see Griffin Glass Houses- we're working with them on a collaborative garden for RHS Hampton Court- so it was exciting to see them, and they were giving away one of their glass houses! We had a fabulous time on the Guruve and Ornate Garden stands. The Guruve sculptures looked stunning as ever displayed on our pedestals, lots of pieces were sold, and it was so nice to see everyone that came to say hello- thank you all for stopping by!
Celebrity Spotting!We loved getting up close and watching the BBC filming, but even better was personally meeting some of the fantastic gardeners and chatting to them about their Chelsea efforts...
At the AwardsWe were at Chelsea at 7.30am on the day the medals were being handed out, it was amazing to see the gardeners reactions first hand! All in all we had an absolutely fantastic Chelsea... did you? What did you enjoy the most? We'd love to see your best bits- send us your photos on Facebook or Twitter!
