A day out at Gardeners World Live 2013

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.
Pack in as many plants as you can 
Look carefully, can you see Woolly Thyme
edging the border 
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.

  1. It looks like you had a great time, by the looks of it the Health for Life garden would be my favourite too.

  2. Lovely pictures, we really like the Health for Life garden as well, a nice marriage of pragmatism and beauty, so full and vibrant.

    We’ve only just discovered your blog and we’re really enjoying it!


I really do appreciate you leaving me a comment, and I enjoy reading them all.
