The Chelsea Flower Show

The world famous Chelsea Flower Show is in full swing this week and as always, it's a sold out event. Claire (our resident Brit) says Chelsea is the event for celebrities to been seen at. Think the Kentucky Derby minus mint juleps & horses.

For the week, members of the press,
horticultural experts and gardeners of all skill levels blanket the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea to witness show gardens designed by the crème de la crème of the industry. Some highlights include an urban garden display & a garden created by our friends at QVC.

Thompson & Morgan is also at Chelsea. We are introducing an exclusive variety that will be available in the 2010 season -
Digitalis 'Pam's Split'. Since we can't hop on a plane & see it in person, here's a sneak peek.
This interesting and unusual digitalis features white blooms with speckled throats and an intriguing split lower lip. Digitalis ‘Pam's Split’ also produces multi stems from the basal crown of foliage, giving a longer, more impressive border display.

But it seems the talk of the show has revolved over a little friend that's probably in many of our gardens right now. Presenting....'Gnome Gate'.
