I wonder what the general opinions are regarding the decision to allow garden gnomes at Chelsea. I was shocked, for I think they are hideous.
A garden sometimes needs a bit of fun, If a brief for a garden asks for a sense of fun or humour then why not. I don't mean a gnomeland but for fun - why not a few??
A garden should have whatever the gardener wants it to have.
I have a couple of garden gnomes and fairies and moles and beatrix potter characters

Don't really have an opinion about Chelsea, but if someone wants gnomes in their garden .......why not?
I love a gnome
like the idea of gnomes waiting for the bus
I am not shocked about the gnomes-about time the stuffy RHS woke up-look how they came over in the Sarah Raven programme about wildflower gardens-a load of stuffed shirts.
The gardens at Chelsea are usually a load of designers high flying-in one case actually high and flying-poncy ideas and bear little relation to what an ordinary gardener can and does achieve.
One up for gnomeland
This might be it-but cant find a picture
It is all oop North isn't it?-one big place?
Right place -different story
When son was little we had those latex moulds to make gnomes with cement. He loved them and used to paint them in very garish colours! They have long passed their best so now I have some stone owls, 2 cherubs, 2 japanese lanterns and a rubber snake at top of drive. Snake was supposed to scare cats away but seems to work better on people . Terrified a "cold caller" not so long ago - great big bloke who screamed like a baby
3 gnomes here to be joined by a couple of fairies if I can get that part of garden finished
