Plant Belles at Chelsea 2015 (Part 2 - the show must go on!) August 01, 2015 12:52

Chelsea Flower Show 2015 proved to be another memorable event for Plant Belles, but this time for all the wrong reasons...

It has taken a while to write this, as it has taken a while to recover!. We broke down in spectacular style - at the gates to the Chelsea showground, only days before the show opens (ready or not). A catastrophic clutch failure meant we were turned away with our first load, our wizzy new Chelsea hut centerpiece to build (made by Barrel Top Wagons), lots of plant supports and plants.

After a lot of ciaos, a hired van, 2 trips to Devon and back, 2 London garages, and a little help from some helping hands, we managed to put on our 2015 'bigger' display and launch our new trellis design the Climbing Squares, all in the nick of time. We even managed to scoop our second 3 star display award - if only they knew...

  

Despite the mayhem of setting up and the long days, we love it!
