Chelsea week, and what a great time to be out in the garden.  If you're not lucky enough to be able to go and see the show for yourself, I'm sure the BBC will once again be dedicating a great deal of this weeks TV coverage to it.

I'm so excited to be working on the Spear and Jackson stand on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, and would love for you to come and say hello if you are around.

I've been busy planting up a couple of beautiful gabion baskets and also working with a company to build a posh cedar potting shed, complete with green Sedum roof.  I'll take some pics whilst i'm down there and post them next week when i'm back.

Before I go to Chelsea, there's just time to build up my propagation house, perfect for protecting and growing on seedlings and cuttings.  I've missed the main sowing season now but will be using it for growing on the tomatoes, and will be sowing some late vege crops in modules later in the summer for overwintering.

 The garden has really come on this week, and I'm looking forward to more warm weather to come.

 
Enjoy Chelsea, but most of all enjoy your own garden, and have a great gardening week!
