During the cold winter months it makes you wonder how we could sit outdoors in shorts and tee shirts or ladies with their short dresses. With the heavy snow over most parts of the country during the winter months, which turned our summer houses into white houses and, maybe, made us think of the Swiss Alps maybe a touch of luxury log cabins.
The snow can be welcome for a short whole and children enjoy frolicking about in it, I know my grandson Daniel, did. When the snow arrived my wife went to the local hardware shop and bought 2 sledges. One made of unsympathetic plastic and one made from wood. Guess which one I preferred seeing I started my garden cabins factory back in 1979. Alas, the snow didn’t last too long and the sledges are now residing in my summer house which I use as a garden shed.
This time of the year can be spent planning for the warmer days to come with decisions to be made over what plants, shrubs or seeds to buy. Also making decisions about whether the garden furniture can last another year or should we remove it from the summer house and take it to the local tip.
The barbecue often is showing signs of rusting so maybe consider one of the latest models, even a gas powered barbecue if you are feeling radical. To me a gas barbecue doesn’t seem right but, with the lava rock being heated by the gas, the food still cooks very well and tasty. I can smell it now. Having said that I don’t use it very often and remains in my garden shed most of the year
At spring approaches you can often find the local county shows, often during the late bank holiday weekend in May, where you can often see the latest summer house furniture on display and other gardening equipment for the garden shed can be seen and, or, bought. At the Kent Garden Show there was over 300 exhibitors, which included 100 nurseries, who provided demonstrations during their attendance. The demonstrations covers activities such as furniture making right through to fencing.
In 2010 to add to this they had a full size Hurricane fighter plane, an icon from the Second World War which was to celebrate the 70th university of the Battle of Britain. Also a craft area for visitors to try their hands at a range of hobbies and rides for the children. A spokesperson for the show said the features for that year were the floral marquees and delightful floral garden displays. This included several Chelsea Flower Show medal winners where you can often see luxury log cabins if you have plenty to spend.
The adventurous plant hunter – horticulturist, Tom Hart Dyke, was on hand to answer questions relating to the garden all over the weekend. His most famous escapade was in 2000 when he was kidnapped near Pananl searching for wild orchids. This did not deter him and has since established the World Garden of Plants. This has grown to a collection of over 10,000 specious of gardening plants.
Just a few of the exhibitions at this county garden show were gardening books, the ever popular water features, garden furniture as well as hand and power tools. These items were popular for gardeners replacing or adding to their summer house’s range of tools and equipment.
The British love their gardens and the many garden shows spread throughout the year which give them the opportunity to see the latest gardens, plants, shrubs garden equipment as well as view the latest summer houses, chalets, workshops, timber cabin and humble garden sheds. The sheer range of displays are breathtaking and, besides giving people ideas of what can be achieved in their gardens, are superb social events.
The Chelsea Flower Show is probably the ‘biggie’ of the year and is highly prestigious with royalty, celebrities, film stars and all the ‘top dogs’ making their way there. After the press day the pubic get the opportunity to take in this wonderful show. Whilst it used to be the largest flower show Hampton Court Show, about 6-7 weeks later, is now larger. However this does not make the Chelsea Flower Show any the less because of this.
The show does have entries from all over the world and who display the latest and innovative gardens to provoke the gardening world. And hopefully to win a prize, which can help commercially. In all its years exhibits has included flowers from nurseries and model gardens. Both are looked forward to but the model gardens are probably the most thought provoking.
The Royal family traditionally always attend the on the opening day each year and see the gardens at its best. This show which has been held at the home of the Chelsea Pensioners, the Chelsea Hospital grounds, every year since 1913 except during war time.
How the exhibitors manage to get their entries to bloom at the correct time is awe inspiring but the visitors are very glad that they do. Over the years there has been untold number of exhibitors but two, McBeans Orchids and Blackmore & Langdon, have appeared at every one since 1913. A truly remarkable record.
The show does have some restrictions as to what can be displayed and the use of coloured sculptures are banned, this meant the very British gnome has not been seen in these special grounds. However, it’s believed that some have been smuggled in. In 2009 James May, as part of a TV series, entered a garden made out of plasticine. This really looked the part but was unable to win any of the normal awards as the flowers were not real. However, he did win the ‘People’s Choice’ award as special recognition of his special garden.
In 2010 gardening fans heard that the plant of the year was the Harlequin Blue. So many people were wishing to visit and tickets sold out more earlier than in earlier years. Prior to 1979 tickets were not sold and you just paid at the turnstiles but that year massive crowds meant a re think had to take place and tickets now have to be bought in advance.
RHS’s shows director, Stephen Bennett, said that this show enables the public to fulfil their gardening needs. At the show they can indulge in the range of gardens and displays without feeling guilty, however you will often see luxury log cabins for sale way out of the budget of most people. Being the nation’s favourite pastime will always ensure a place in the hearts of gardeners as well as this hobby being good for the participants and the local environment.
