Chelsea garden show
I had an excellent time at the show. It was absolutely beautiful! After going to kew and to chelsea I think my biggest disappointment was seeing all the same plants we have for sale at our big box stores. I think the only plants I have that I didn't see at chelsea are the tropical plants I have from south America.
I have a book Monty Don's American Gardens, I often pick it up and look again at the photographs of trees so varied and amazing.
We often see the same plants on our travels, Chelsea this can give a false impression as some plants are force and some held back. I can remember visiting seeing a wonderful plant combination and realising I couldn't create the same in my own garden.
It is how plants are used that is important, one plant can be used in so many ways to show a gardener's personality.
