Gardens devoid of life

Nicely summed up.

Gardens devoid of life

Posted: 17/05/2012 at 22:05

Yet again Chelsea is showing gardens that remind me of building sites, maybe not so muddy but as hideous. Chelsea tries to make me feel really old-fashioned and out of date but I'm not. It's just that I like flowers - real ones. I like colour. I like stems and leaves too. I don't know why we have to have steel structures to symbolise something. Why lay down astro-turf and add dull metal. Why plain old timber when real trees could take it's place? What's wrong with a great cottage garden full of beautiful flowers? I find the trendy gardens depressing and lifeless.

Growing clematis in a pot

I'll let you know because I have just planted one today in a tall but very narrow pot in a paved courtyard. I think with regular watering and I suppose some kind of feed when flowering it will be fine. It's right opposite the kitchen window so I will keep a watchful eye whenever at the sink!
