What did you think of the Hampton court shows this week?
I prefer the informality of it compared to Chelsea but there was very little about the actual plants again, for me. I also found it, ESP tonight's prog, almost depressing. So much about the demise of everything, the gloomy outlook for people and the planet. So many "themes" too. Too many gardens designed with heavy elaborate structures instead of focussing on plants. I could use more hard landscaping in my garden I guess but it's the softness of plants that I enjoy and that's what I wanted to see at the Hampton court show. Sometimes the experts miss the essence of gardening.....failing to understand that many of us simply want to drool over the plants
