On the horizon for Summer

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

Press Update

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.
