The Chelsea Flower Show 2012 (Part 2)

By NEILMUIR1
September 1, 2012

The Chelsea Flower Show is an eagerly awaited event after our long winter. It is the first time everyone gets together and can see the new plants as well as creations of sculptors and artists. A lot of gardeners use it as a social event, or to order sensational plants for the coming season in whatever variety interests them. On the final day a lot of the plants are sold off and London is awash with a sea of plants. It is a truly amazing sight!

Neil, how many days did you go?

I loved the 'farm stands.' I am always amazed that when needed, both produce and flowers can be brought to perfection when needed. I would have spent a lot of time with the bonsai. I will do one someday. I had once started one, but it died in a particularly harsh winter.
