Turf Grass Plants win Gold at The RHS Chelsea Flower Show....

Grassclippings - Chelsea Flower ShowWell, not actually, although a garden kitted out with part artificial grass did win a Gold Medal and Best Fresh Garden Award at the famous garden show.  Well done to everyone involved but they could have used natural turf instead of plastic!!

We fully support the use of artificial grass in situations where you cannot get natural grass to grow but being able to grow, sculpture and fix turf around a show garden is not difficult.  It has been done many times before and can with some thought be done again...

Designed by Tony Smith, and sponsored by Easigrass and built by Easigrass and Hortus infinitus.  The garden titled 'Green with....' is a horticultural installation concerned with the human emotions of envy and desire. This theme is explored through colour, form and plant history.

The structure suggests a cage; perhaps the prison that the deeply envious individual who desires what another owns will inevitably find themselves trapped within, should they not conquer their weaknesses. The three Perspex cylinders at the centre of the structure hint that the orchids they contain are being kept safely out of reach. Like the orchids, the tulips and ferns have, over time, been the subject of desire and envy.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is one of the most famous gardening shows in the world, a celebration of the highest quality horticulture and a feast for your imagination. Also known as the Great Spring Show, it is held every year in May, running for five days and receives over 157,000 visitors. The event is run by the Royal Horticultural Society and takes place on the large grounds (11 acres) of the Royal Hospital in Chelsea, London.  Popular features include the show gardens designed by leading names and the centrepiece of the floral marquee.
