UK Gardening News
One of my favourite gardens at the 2013 RHS Chelsea Flower Show was the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism garden inspired by Emily Dickinson, conceived by Susannah Hunter with expert planting from Catherine MacDonald.
The garden won a Silver Gilt and its good news to know that the same expert team will again be exhibiting at the 2014 show.
This time Susannah and Catherine will be returning with a larger show garden inspired largely by the Massachusetts' Atlantic coastline and again sponsored by The Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism.
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) kicks off the 2014 season with the RHS London Plant and Design Show on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd February.
Fresh winter colour and early-flowering plants will be exhibited by the UK's best nurserymen and growers with an abundance of bulbs and plants to buy.
Visitors can expect to see and buy contemporary garden products and many different snowdrops, hellebores and early spring bulbs including new plants and unusual cultivars.
RHS Chief Horticultural Advisor, Guy Barter explains that we have been lucky in the UK this year that the cold has come gradually: "If we get a mild autumn," he says, "and then deep cold, damage can be severe, but a gradual cooling leaves plants hardened and ready for severe conditions."
