With so much to do in the garden and so little time, we’re continuing to look for easy wins to make us feel like we’re making progress and relatively on top of things. We’re not. But for every pot planted and small area of a patio weeded, we afford ourselves a quick tea break and gentle pat on the back.
There’s something a little bit magical about greenhouses. They’re almost like stepping in to another world. Not simply outdoor rooms for growing things in - although, as someone who snacks daily on cucumber, I’m all for that functionality - they make the most beautiful working and entertaining spaces, too.
A few days on from my first ever visit to RHS Chelsea Flower Show and I still have a spring in my step from the magic of it all. I’ve been watching the Chelsea highlights on the TV for what seems like years and it was an incredible experience to suddenly find myself in the midst of a place that mostly resembles a beautifully styled and incredibly picturesque film set.
