Lovely to see our previously blogged RHS Chelsea Centenary flag working hard at the show this week :)
Lots of RHS Chelsea Flower Show this week.
Our Preview Day highlights: Joanna Lumley, the Trailfinders Aussie garden, and in a similar vein to the previously posted Smiths/Chelsea connection, some Mod action!
Oh, and the gnomes of course. More of them later.
Liam Gallagher might be able to blag a freebie to Chelsea – but he can’t blag one of these fellas from the main marquee a couple of years ago.
Proper Manc royalty recognised there.
Next week is Chelsea week – 2013 seeing the centenary of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. We’re splendidly chuffed to’ve been asked to produce the ident for this year’s show – and thought we’d dig out some behind-the-scenes snaps from the Chelsea 100 Flag shoot.
Not often must be able to be used really large to cover up building work is included in an ID brief (and, to be fair, it wasn’t), but wonderful nonetheless to turn the corner onto Vincent Square last week to see this.
If only all hoardings were so cheery.
The novelty of opening the paper and seeing something what we’ve done never lessens, so lovely to see Diarmuid Gavin and Rachel de Thame launching National Gardening Week at Westminster today, in front of our identity.
The butterflies are currently starring at RHS Garden Wisley’s Glasshouse – but beat a quick path there as they close on March 3rd.
On a quite frankly withering winter’s day it was splendid to head into a steamy tropical paradise and come face-to-face with these amazing creatures.
Great to see young and old alike delighting in the same activity. Not spied often enough in our demographic-chasing modern world.
Well done Wisley!
A big day at the RHS yesterday, with the official launch of the revamped Award of Garden Merit.
As it says on our materials, the AGM is all about Plants that Perform – providing gardeners of all abilities with a tried-and-tested selection, an RHS quality kite mark.
The AGM’s currently taking centre stage at the RHS London Plant & Design Show as well.
Next time you’re in the garden centre, keep an eye out for the logo!
More RHS show action – this time Shades of Autumn, with a splendid quilting/horticulture mash-up. And some great photography from the old master-esque (and Gold Medal-winning) Clay Perry (main image) and Nigel Chapman (ferns). And some glads too, just in case Moz is in town.
We were at the RHS London Harvest Festival Show Late last night, and a grand time was had by all. From unbelievably large comedy pumpkins to the avant garde sounds of the London Vegetable Orchestra it was surreal and sublime in equal measure. The next show is RHS London Shades of Autumn on the 23rd & 24th October – here’s hoping there’s more after-hours action.
