Chelsea success 2014….

We are delighted to say that the Crocus build team, ably assisted by some of our people, have yet again achieved 2 gold medals at Chelsea, including the best in show for the Laurent Perrier Garden. A hearty congratulations to Peter, Jamie, and all involved.

Vicki, Danny and I were rather more humbly (but no less anxiously) planting up for Philip Simmonds Sculptural Ceramics. If you are not familiar with his work do look at is as it is completely wonderful. Some shots below show the stand before Philips work was brought in- we are visiting tomorrow so will have some more images. I have also listed some of the key plants for show visitors wanting to know what they are!

Apologies to Philip for the swaddled pot- we are here showing an Acer behind the pot (Acer bloodgood), with the lovely Persicaria bisorta Superba (the pink flowers) and Iris sibirica Snow Prince (purple flowers)
