Mark Gregory and Welcome to Yorkshire, at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018

The Welcome to Yorkshire Garden I honestly couldn’t fault the Welcome to Yorkshire garden.  I would have moved into the delightful stone cottage in this garden if I could have got away with it! The Welcome to Yorkshire Garden, at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018 was designed by Mark Gregory and built by Landform Consultants.

At this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show I couldn’t wait to visit the Welcome to Yorkshire show garden, which was designed by Mark Gregory and built by Mark and Landform Consultants

Anne Godfrey and Daisy Roots Nursery celebrate at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018!

Daisy Roots is a small, independent nursery, run by Anne Godfrey in Hertfordshire.  Anne Godfrey specialises in growing drought tolerant, hardy perennials and ornamental grasses, which Anne propagates herself from seeds and cuttings, at her nursery in Hertford.  All of the plants sold by Daisy Roots are hardy, healthy, and drought resistant.

At the RHS Chelsea Flower Show every single show garden, in every category has the opportunity to win a Gold Medal.  There are no limitations on the number of Gold, Silver-Gilt, Silver, or Bronze medals that the judges can award, nor is there a requirement for any medal to be awarded – if none of the gardens are of Gold Medal standard, then no Gold Medals will be presented.

I have been waiting for this moment for some time now!  I spoke to David Neale in 2015 about his ambition and aspiration to design and build a show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, so I was really excited when David told me that he would be building a show garden for the 2018 RHS Chelsea Flower Show! 

New Introductions from David Austin Roses for 2018

New David Austin Roses!

At this time of year, I love to see the new rose buds developing on my favourite roses, as they burst into life and produce the first flowers of the year.  At the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, I am always filled with excitement as I meet the new introductions from David Austin Roses for the first time! 

Garden Designer David Neale’s Plans for the Silent Pool Gin Garden
