My patio is fast disappearing under a mass of plants which can only mean one thing – it must be show season.
Yesterday I marked out the outline of this year’s garden on my lawn. I spent all day today spacing out plants, viewing them from all sides, then moving them again and again and again…
Ian Cooper Landscaping built my first ever show garden last autumn. This year we’re being a bit more ambitious and aiming to do two or three shows. The first is next week-end; the Norfolk Spring Garden Show runs from 9:30am-5pm on 9th-11th May at the Norfolk Showground. We will be there to chat and give advice, so come and see us.
We learned a lesson from last year when it poured with rain the entire first day, so this year we have a gazebo for shelter; fingers-crossed we won’t need it.
If you can’t make it to the Showground we’ll be at the Woodgate Nursery Garden Show in Aylsham from 10am to 5pm on 17th-18th May. We’d love to see you.
