Chilstone loves the summer so we cannot complain too much about the brilliant sunshine...BUT It is playing havoc with our Chelsea show garden with designer Heather Appleton scouring the country looking for late blooms. Our friend Gerald Bonner from Coblands has also been busy growing hundreds of blooms for The Chilstone Garden but they have all been put in cold storage in the hope that they will flower on the day.
The papers are full of stories about the Chelsea Flower Show being the most colourful in years and there may be a lot of Roses on show this year so that will be a bonus. In fact the show is sold out and tickets are changing hands at £250 and more. We will try to keep you posted on our efforts.
