If you read our preview of this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, you will no doubt be eagerly wanting to know the results. Some of the main awards were the Geranium ‘Rozanne’ being named as Plant of the Centenary, and the Trailfinders Australian Garden, built by Phillip Johnson Landscapes, being awarded Best Show Garden.
The Plant of the Centenary is a special award this year to commemorate Chelsea’s 100th year. The ‘Rozanne’ was named after its discoverer, Mrs Rozanne Waterer, who found the strange looking geranium at the bottom of her garden in the small village of Kilve in Somerset in 1989. It is thought that it is a naturally occurring hybrid, which grows taller and has larger flowers than most other geraniums.
The Trailfinders Australian Garden is an attempt at “capturing a small snippet of the beauty of the Australian country”. It uses native Australian plants, from lush ferns to bright kangaroo paws and bottle trees, and includes a waterfall and billabong. You can see a short video showing the garden, along with a chat with the designer Philip Johnson, by clicking here.
You can see all the awards, along with lots of images and videos, at the show’s website.

We are busy adding the final touches to our classroom, in preparation for our pattern imprinted concrete training day. Due to unforseen circumstances the date has been pushed forward by a week to Saturday the 15th June, but there are still places available if you wish to learn about the installation process of pattern imprinted concrete.
The course will begin at 9am, with refreshments and lunch included. The booking fee is £25, or alternatively you can just turn up on the the day and pay the £150 + VAT total, but obviously a place will not be guaranteed for you.
