Hallelujah! Fruit and Veggies are taking more of a part in the RHS Chelsea Flower Show
. I think it represents a growing interest generally in growing your own food and the clever people at the RHS are reflecting this in their show. One of the big stands inside the marquee was from Waitrose and the NFU, the National Farmers Union. This stunning display combining flowers with fruit and veg.
This beautiful display of asparagus is set on a tray of seeds, in fact many of the displays here were on a tray of different coloured seeds, wonderful!
Some beautiful colour schemes in the display.
One of my favourites was this watercress fountain on a gravel bed, lovely!
The display at the Kings Seeds
stand was wonderful too. Every plant label had the seeds stuck round the edge for effect.
and a beautiful collage of seeds!
..and some novel ideas for container gardening in a small space. A few years ago at Chelsea this would have been a Harrods bag... oh how times change!
