We need suitable female presenters and I don't mean Rachel de Thame. Does Emily Blunt know anything about gardening?

Evening all.

Cold and wet here today, but amazing how much stuff has grown, in the 3 days we were away.

Struggling for space again, greenhouse overflowing with Dahlias and other half hardies, but not happy to plant out yet.

Off to cook supper, will not be up to Fera's standards.

Have a good evening.

Meant to say earlier, tried a new Gin [ to me ] in London, Sipsmiths VJOP [ Very Junipery Over Proof ], it was lovely.

There's orangey........

Will you get Crocus and Wallflowers to bloom together though?

A lovely combination I saw at Chelsea, was Lupinus Masterpiece, with an Orange Geum and Anchusa Loddon Royalist, stunning.

Ighten, isn't it funny how tastes vary. I did not like the Parfumiers garden, but loved C. Beardshaws and completely agree with you about Viking Cruises, one of the worst Show Gardens I have seen.

Obelixx, if you have the Red Button on your TV, they are doing 5 Show Gardens , in more detail, each day.

Have to disagree re: Dan Pearson. Having seen it up close and personal it is one of the most stunning creations I have seen. The detail was amazing.

BL, Chris Beardshaws garden was also stunning, the planting was beautiful.He makes real Gardens.

Look at some of the Chelsea planting this year, lots of blues / purples combined with oranges.

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.
