Came across these stone water troughs on a client visit in Northumberland. I love it that someone would go to so much trouble to detail livestock troughs in this way, one rectilinear, one crescent shaped, joined by a narrow rill. #gardendesign#landscape#stone#water
A few of my Chelsea highlights. There's no doubt the show has a different feel due to the low numbers of large show gardens. But, I think the Fresh and Artisan gardens have gone up a level in terms of ideas and quality. And the RHS/Radio 2 gardens have proven a very worthwhile partnership, even if it was rather forced on the RHS. There are fewer show gardens, for sure, but some really interesting and challenging work in those that are there. Here's hoping the Society find a new source of sponsorship to take the show forward next year.
