20 May 2014 - Chelsea

Dear Fellow Gardeners

Once again across the country we have had 'interesting' weather to start the year.  In contrast to last year, when Spring was cold and everything was late, this year it was wet then warm and everything is early.  Fortunately, with our new facilities, we were able to cope and have again had an excellent start to the Show season.  

This week we are at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show where we are delighted to have received our 5th consecutive gold medal for our Gladioli display.  We look forward to welcoming our regular and new customers to our display, GPH/15, in the Great Pavilion.

Last night on the 8 pm BBC2 'RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014' programme for the Queen's visit, Celebrity and Press day, our display featured as a backdrop for part of Benedict Cumberbatch’s tour of the show with his mother the actress Wanda Ventham.  The programme may be viewed until 19 June 2014 on the BBC iPlayer [RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014: Episode 4, 25:20 - 31:50].

25 May 2013 - Chelsea

Dear Fellow Gardeners

Across the country it has been a difficult start to 2013.  Early on it was wet and then there was the prolonged cold spell during which there was little growth making everything late.  Fortunately, with our new facilities, we were able to grow on by early May sufficient produce for the Malvern Spring Gardening Show where we were pleased to receive a gold medal for our ‘Tulips, alliums and other flowers grown from bulbs’ and to meet, once again, many of our regular customers.  

Now, less than a fortnight later, here we are at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show where we are delighted to have received a Centenary gold medal for our Gladioli display.  Our display also featured as a backdrop for Alan Titchmarsh’s brief ‘Masterclass’ on BBC2 where he explained the differences between bulbs (alliums, narcissi and tulips), corms (gladioli), tubers (dahlias) and rhizomes (irises).  It may be viewed until 31 May 2013 on the BBC iPlayer.
