HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

Have to agree Chicky. I think that there are 2 stunning gardens: Cleve West and Andy Sturgeon. Both stunning.

I find there are plenty of ideas to take away from all over the show, that we can use in our own piece of paradise.

Pedantry is so a lovely word, and, so much better than the one that sounds very similar.

I may be wrong, but I think many of the great IMO garden designers are untrained.

Sorry, I disagree.

Yes there are some gardens I don't like, but also some that are very beautiful / amusing.

The BBC cover it not just because it is about gardens, but because it is a show, and many of the watching public, want to see the celebs. 

Chelsea 2016: Modern Slavery Garden. WTF?

Posted: 23/05/2016 at 23:13

I love them.

Cleve West and Andy Sturgeons gardens, are, IMO beautiful.

Some of the small gardens are designed to be contemporary works of art, with a message, which I thought the modern slavery garden did.

D. Gavins garden made me laugh, which was what he set out to do.

Chelsea is theatre, most of the gardens are not meant to be like your own garden, but I still find ideas, and many of the planting combinations are divine.

There are always new plants on display, and plants that you have not seen before.

Chacun a son gout. 

Hosta ID please.

If Hosta does not know, no chance for the rest of us!

A lot depends on how big they get. Several of mine grow to  4 by 3 feet, so I don't think they need grouping.

Small plants would look better in groups, but not all 20 odd together!

Happy Birthday Clari.

In cold greenhouse.

Will be planted out in about 1 - 2 weeks. Big ones first, and hopefully small ones will then be bigger!
