I was lucky enough to win tickets to this year's Gardeners World Live including a nights stay at the nearby Hilton Metropole. What a fabulous day, the sun was out and so were the crowds.
I thought I would share with you my show highlights from the day.
My favourite show garden was Health for Life, it was predominately fruit and vegetables, but demonstrated how you can utilise your space yet still make the garden attractive and practical.

|Look carefully, can you see Woolly Thyme |

|What a fine specimen of an Aeoluim, hope I can look after mine well enough it makes it to this size.|
|great use of a wicker basket|
Great use of Succulents to break up hard landscaping
Spotted this wonderful swing seat, and yes I put my feet up and enjoyed a brief sit down after all it was a tiring day. I did also make a few purchases day alas not this swing seat, but a pot of Desdemona Violas, Pineapple Sage, Woolly Thyme and a miniature glass house.
