    Tell us how it goes LG.

    I think the aeroplane is great.

    Thank you for your comments @LG_ and I am pleased they were informative. It looks as though you have picked a good day looking at the weather forecast although I suspect shoes rather than sandals will still be the order of the day.

    I hope you have as good a day as we did and the journey is not too trying - although there are many temptations to make the trip home more problematic  :D

    Had a great day, really enjoyable - so glad I went. And @AnniD I did take photos of the Hardy's stand, though not sure how good they are! I'll sort my photos out tomorrow and post a few.

    Here they are, @AnniD. It was quite difficult to get good pictures without too many people, and of course the light inside the marquee is quite flat.

    There was some stunning planting in this garden. Not particularly innovative but beautiful and skilled.

    The Cancer Research UK Legacy Garden,
    by Tom Simpson
    This was smaller and more intimate than it appeared on the TV. You really needed to be in it to appreciate it - luckily we were able to walk around.

    The Viking Friluftsliv Garden,
    by Will Williams
    Some really lovely planting in this garden, and more of it than first appeared. I've had to price up some of those pines for a garden design - £££!

    The Extinction (Global Impact) Garden,
    by Felicity O'Rourke
    Not a garden but an art installation. Peering through into the primordial jungle was a sensory experience - you could smell it. It achieved the shock and upset it was aiming for, but in my opinion the upset was mainly about thinking of people dying in plane crashes, rather than the environmental impact.

    Message in a Bottle,

    This was much better in real life than on TV.

    @LG_ thankyou so much for posting all those lovely photos and l particularly appreciate the effort you went to for me.
    I know how difficult it can be to get a decent photo in the Floral marquees, someone always seems to walk in front or stand there oblivious, those are great and give a wonderful sense of the stand. As you can tell, l am a big Hardy's fan  :)
    Glad you had a good day, where there any purchases made whilst you were in the marquee?
