Rosy results in the making! Chelsea Flower Show 2016

An excited Finnish garden designer at the world-renowned Chelsea Flower Show 2016 in London

The Chelsea Flower Show in May 2016 in London will offer me a be a great opportunity to work with the award-winning British designer Jo Thompson, listed as “one of the top ten designers in the country”.

The inspiration for her design, The Chelsea Barracks Garden, stems from the heritage of the Chelsea Barracks site in London.

The gardening team will be very international this year. As always, creating the garden will mean long labour-intensive days, but for passionate garden professionals this will also mean a lot of fun, and having a good time is guaranteed! The quality of the landscaping for Jo’s garden will be assured by the Landform team of Mark Gregory, who have during his 26 years in Chelsea, provided landscaping for a whopping 150 show gardens!

I'm excitedly looking forward to my 11th Chelsea Flower Show and being able to use a lovely selection of plants where roses will play a significant role!
