The new Vaso Impero was planted with giant Agapanthus. We are all so pleased to have our latest pot in a showgarden.
Lots more accomplished today despite the draining and relentless heat of the sun. Fortified by a cup of strong coffee, we started the day potting up the large Archi, Stemma and Finestras with fabulous deep purple lavender. Spent a fair amount of time sourcing the right plants for our sweet maschera and ovale planters and hit gold with the most amazing auriculas and violas. All in all it’s been a memorable build up and after all the hard work we’re ready and looking forward to showing off our pots. We’re keeping a list of what plants we’ve used and where they were sourced. Pop by the stand and we’ll be glad to share this with you. Hope to see you on the corner of Southern Road SR22 sometime this week.
Day two of build up at Chelsea and the stand is really taking shape. The small set backs of yesterday are now long forgotten. The plants are outstanding this year and we are very grateful to our friends who helped us out in a pinch. A large Colonna takes centre stage this year with outstanding clematis supplied by a grower from Guernsey. Our new designs look great with the Impero planted for the first time with agapanthus – thank you Tom H. Finishing touches on the finishing touches over the weekend. Hoping we see lots of familiar faces from Monday.
Really excited about this pot Vaso Impero Liscio. We have made it in 2 sizes 70cm and 50cm wide at the top. They will be at Chelsea and we are thrilled that Tom Hoblyn has chosen to place 2 on his show garden on Main Avenue. The design is based on the Imperical designs of the Napoleonic era. We are looking forward to filling it with big flowering plants, will try a few ideas at Chelsea. All the new designs will be on the website in a day or so and we shall link them from here asap.
This peony would be fabulous in a pot and is on the shopping list, we dare not dig her up.
‘Molly’ is really hard to find, so if anyone out there knows where, do let us know.
This Pavonne plaque is set into a finished rendered and painted wall, it looks like it has always been there.
