I am delighted that we have been asked by not one but two organisations, to provide them with the plants for their floral displays at the Countryfile Live show at Blenheim Palace. (August 3rd to 6th)

We are providing the British Beekepers Association with the main centrepiece display in thier marquee and the Wildlife Trust with the planting for thier 'bee and butterfly ' borders.

Its been an anxious time trying to get the plants to flower at the right time, not helped by the very hot weather in June which meant everything began to flower a bit early. Howerver I am happy to say that we managed to produce some very nice looking plants and they are now all at the show just waiting for the visitors.

I will be there too for most of the show, mainly in the BBKA tent which can be found over the river in the wildlife zone.

hope the weather is kind to us all.
