Busy as the bees

Summer is here

Summer is here and an abundance of activity is happening in our gardens. The opulent colours of spring and summer replace the colours of winter. Bees are busy collecting nectar and pollen, cleverly pollinating our plants.

The biggest sign that Summer is here, is when many garden enthusiasts, garden designers and retailers busy themselves preparing for the season’s biggest gardening event. The RHS Chelsea Flower Show.¬†

I do not have a trade stand at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year however, I am excited that my cushions will be featured on the Fresh Garden, Beneath a Mexican Sky designed by Manoj Malde. Good luck to Manoj, fingers crossed for a Gold!!

The Love Your Garden team approached me last year for a cushion for a garden transformation. If you watch closely on this episode, you may catch a glimpse of the Red Poppy double sided cushion…
