Morning all.

Back from wining, dining and gardening in London.

I thought Chelsea was great.

Dan Pearsons "creation" was probably the best I have seen, attention to detail just extraordinary, wild areas looked so natural. My only criticism would be, that I am not sure it was a garden.

Very high quality of planting in several other gardens, it is interesting how often particular plants seem to occur across several gardens.

Lots of purple / orange combinations and Geums used very heavily.

For the foodies amongst you, our meal had to change when Dinner phoned on Saturday and said they were moving table to 22.30. Too late for me to start eating what should be a 4 hour experience, so we cancelled.

Ended up going to Simon Rogan restaurant Fera. It was stunning, although could have had a short holiday for the cost!

I will try and post some Chelsea photos soon.

Hope all are well.

I am looking forward to seeing the Chelsea garden up close and personal, although overall I did not really like any of the gardens, even though I enjoyed the programme concept.

You do not need to feed anything like once a week. I tend to feed my borders twice a season, which is more than adequate.

Cold here to fidget.

Have given up my planning session in the garden and retreated to the greenhouse for a while. Glad to see most of my Dahlias are growing quite strongly in their pots. It will be a marathon session to get them all in the ground.
