Spring has well and truly arrived, all be it in its typically English way, in fits and starts, scorchers and frosts and definitely budding and blossoms! The time of year has come yet again to pull out your most floral of attire, practice your royal greeting (on the off chance you may catch a glimpse of the Queen herself) and pay homage to the institution that is Alan Titchmarsh- it’s the gardening equivalent of the Oscars – Chelsea Flower Show!! If that’s not enough to get excited about; the fact that we are going to be there is simply amazing! It’s rare to be given the opportunity to be surrounded by people who are as interested in plants and flowers as we are in such a celebration of creativity and design. It has been an incredible start to the year for the Urban Botanist and with new products, new shows and so many different people showing an interest in our work we simply can’t wait to get going and meet all you members of the public at Chelsea!!! Here’s to Pimm’s, Panama hats and of course mind blowing gardens and plants to be seen in SW3 in a couple of weeks!!! If you haven’t got tickets yet then make sure you get on to http://www.rhs.org.uk/shows-events/rhs-chelsea-flower-show now and come on down! Can’t wait to show everyone the pictures and people that we meet down there!! Come find us and say hello!
