  1. I think the wildflower trend is a nice one, but a bit overdone this year maybe? Having said that, the history of wildflowers in the garden and piece about William Robbinson earlier this week on the BBC coverage was very interesting and made it obvious that it is not really a new thing.

    It was also interesting to see that the “colour of Chelsea” this year is blue, which personally I hadn’t noticed until they showed the montage of amazing blue flowers. The B&Q vertical garden caused a bit of a debate with me and th missis as she seemed to think it was a good idea while I was arguing that it is more style over substance. I’d like to be proven wrong though.

  2. Always fascinating to see the varied uses of materials each year at the Chelsea Show. Thanks for posting your ‘take’ on the trends. Nigels swoopy stone wall with insect homes is such a nice detail. Would like to use that for an interested client. I wonder if stinging critters would want to nest there tho..how close to human living space do we want it? Great textures though.
    The video of Cleve in France with the sculptors of his columns was cool. Hmm , lots to ponder.

Living Ocotillo Fences – Fouquieria splendens

by Walks On Rocks I am fascinated with a recent discovery.   In the desert southwest the Ocotillo Cactus (Fouquieria splendens) is harvested to create living fences and other garden features.  It is a material that is exciting in that it is unique to the region where it is used and it really gives a sense…

Outdoor Heated Stair Mats

Its raining outside. Make that pouring.  If it were still as cold as it was two days ago, it would be about 6 feet deep. Which has me thinking about shoveling.  I have seen many beautiful walkways ruined with salts and in my own case, my front porch is ipe wood, which I fear to…
