Smell The Flowers

This entry was posted on 11th May 2011

We’ve been lucky to have a great spell of weather recently. The plants look fresh and vibrant and the flowers are out in bloom, spring has been fabulous this year, and fingers crossed we’re moving into what could be quite a successful summer, although they say that every year. Let’s embrace it whilst we can and get out in the garden and the great outdoors. If you don’t really have green fingers or stare at the tropical wilderness that was once your back lawn and don’t know where to start, never fear, because at this time of year there are a plethora of events you can attend to get some great ideas for your garden. The Royal Horticultural Society present the world famous Chelsea Flower Show from the 24th to the 28th of May.  There will be 30 gardens on show to inspire you from names such as B&Q, the Times, the Daily Telegraph and other influential organisations.  You can spend hours, yet days wondering around the fantastic array of plants, furniture and design. This year you can use the RHS Experience, an interactive programme which lets you see what your garden could be like with the help of top designers.  You’ll get a huge amount of advice tips and inspiration for small and large gardens and it’s a brilliant and inspirational day out for the whole family. Even before you walk through the gates, you can download the helpful RHS Chelsea Flower Show "Inside Guide" iPhone app from the iTunes store which gives you all the inside information to make your day run smoothly and enables you to visit all the gardens and demonstrations you need to. No doubt at some point you’ll probably bump into a celebrity, or famous gardener, so keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready! If you think you need to hack your way through the overgrown garden and transform it for summer, visit the RHS Chelsea Flower show, for more information visit
