The Potting Shed.

I wonder what the general opinions are regarding the decision to allow garden gnomes at Chelsea. I was shocked, for I think they are hideous.

    A garden sometimes needs a bit of fun, If a brief for a garden asks for a sense of fun or humour then why not. I don't mean a gnomeland but for fun - why not a few??

    A garden should have whatever the gardener wants it to have.

    Nothing against them ... A garden I know of had wayyyyyyy over the standard amount and big ones, someone jumped the wall one night and lined them up round the corner at the bus stop .

    I am not shocked about the gnomes-about time the stuffy RHS woke up-look how they came over in the Sarah Raven programme about wildflower gardens-a load of stuffed shirts.

    The gardens at Chelsea are usually a load of designers high flying-in one case actually high and flying-poncy ideas and bear little relation to what an ordinary gardener can and does achieve.
