It was Chelsea Flower Show time of year again, and I was given the great opportunity of visiting one of my favorite shows. My first stop was to Hi Ho Silver’s stand, winner of a 3 Star Tradestand Award.

The Alex Monroe exclusive pieces for HiHo Silver looked fantastic on the purpose built display.

Next stop was a look around the show to get some inspiration for my own garden!

I adore these deep crimson, rich plums and pinks which are complemented by dark foliage and the odd burst of mauve from the Aquilegias. I have a similar colour border at home and have decided to add a new rose, which I saw on the David Austin Roses stand.

These Heucheras are from Plantagogo, and have amazing jewel colour foliage. The flowers on these plants are quite small but the leaf colour makes up for this and they come with great names such as ‘Apple Crisp’  ‘Blackberry Jam’ and ‘Crème Brulee’. You could plant your garden up with your favourite puddings !

I always love the incredible displays on the vegetable stand. I purchased some seeds from the stand for W.Robinson & Son (Seeds & Plants) Ltd. I opted for Kale – Peacock mixed with frilled leaves and mixed colours.

I will hopefully be able to grow these seeds on to eat later in the year, but I know it will be a battle between myself and the slugs and snails who will probably get there first. The cheeky squirrels in my garden, have already stolen most of my strawberries, sitting on the garden table nonchalantly tucking in while my shouts at them to go away are unheard!

These wicker foxes reminded me of the jewellery item we do exclusively for HiHo Silver. The prowling fox in gold plate with a little silver tip on the tail end.

I decided to finish my trip to Chelsea with a little treat, a gorgeous ice cream from Purbeck award winning Dorset ice cream in mint choc baby chip, my favourite flavour. I left that evening with lots of ideas for plant combinations and colours for the garden!
