Morning all drizzly here ( perfect for hampton!!!!) chicky you asked what I thought of the gardens and to be honest most left me cold this year!!! It was all very style over substance..... I did love the Jordan's garden and bizarrely the wrath garden o thought the planting was amazing. I loved the Canadian window garden in the conceptual area  I believe she only had £7000 to build it with and despite disliking it on the tv loved the one show garden!!! But here's my gripe they have been banging on about getting more kids interested in gardening and how we have to encourage the children ..... but a. Not one garden showed a garden shared with children!!! Plus there is nothing at all ( apart from a small tent at the other end of the show offering face painting) for children to do at these shows. The crowds are so horrendous I wouldn't take my lo..... Last year there was a carnival atmosphere this year it felt like ££££££ was the focus..... My friend reckons that I should combine a load of you on here to join me and design and do a garden

Evening all phhhoooaaarrrrrr how hot!!! Almost unbearable at hampton court..... I have to say I was very disappointed with it this year. Not overly impressed with the plants in the displays only a few struck me ...... Thought the plants to buy were poor and v expensive. Only one I saw I really wanted and that was digitallis illumination raspberry it was lush..... Sadly no agapanthus well there were but they were quite £££. I would get bigger better plants from the oaktree nursery so sadly still had a lovely day out withy friend


 And lastly to cool me down:-
