The abject misery brought on by the realisation that it’s getting colder and darker was lightened considerably by the ever-wonderful RHS London Harvest Festival Late on Tuesday. The London Vegetable Orchestra, folk from Robin Grey, Wisley cider and Midnight Apothecary cocktails. And those splendid splendid displays of fruit and veg…

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.

The next show is RHS London Shades of Autumn on the 23rd & 24th October – here’s hoping there’s more after-hours action.
