It’s almost a month later and therefore I’m ashamed that it’s taken me so long to report that I attended the Chelsea Flower Show on 27th May 2010 as a guest of the designer fashion site BrandAlley.
As my first experience I was not sure what to expect however the highlight of the day for me (apart from endless jugs of Pimms and their amazing hospitality tent with champagne) was the array of fruit and vegetables, styled and placed in the most eye-opening positions. I just kept saying “are those real?” Onions, carrots, celery – grown to a size one can’t imagine. I wonder what happened to all the veg after the event! I hope they went to a good home (and stomach).
