As gardeners get ready prepping beds and working to get their gardens ready for the summer, I am doing the same at Botanical Cushions.
In the Garden
This month, here are some suggestions on what you should be doing to prep for the Summer:
- Dig in compost to prepare your beds for the growing season
- Feed hungry shrubs and roses
- Attend to your lawn, by sowing new or repairing bare patches
- Tie in climbing and rambling roses
- Deadhead any daffodils and tulips, remember to leave the foliage
- Top up raised beds and containers with compost
Summer prep for Botanical Cushions
Summer jobs for me is about getting ready for the various shows that I will be exhibiting at this year. If you are attending any of these great shows, please pop by and say hello.
This year I have secured stands at:
Weald of Kent Craft and Design Show -Penshurst Place, Tonbridge 30th April-2nd May Stand J19
Wealden Times Midsummer Fair – Hole Park, Rolvenden 9th-11th June
RHS Chelsea – Royal Hospital Chelsea, London 24th-28th May Stand EA455
GROW London – Hampstead Heath, London 24th-26th June Stand K7
I never cease to get excited when a magazine copy drops through my door, highlighting an article that I have been mentioned in. Better still, when you receive a message through social media that someone has spotted your cushions in the press.
This month I received my pre copy of Wealden Times highlighting my mention under ‘New this Month’.
After receiving a message via Twitter I ran out to grab the newest copy of Homes & Gardens to see Botanical Cushions mentioned in the article ‘RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016, Take-Home Favourites’
