I managed to pick the only rainy day to visit Chelsea this year but the sun came out eventually. Sarah Price's rammed earth walls and slightly sparse planting for M&G were things of beauty, as was the gorgeous green glade by Tom Stuart-Smith for the Garfield Weston Foundation. Inspired by the gardening stories of refugees living in Iraq's Kurdistan region, The Lemon Tree Trust garden by Tom Massey managed to be both moving and lovely at the same time. A common theme throughout the show was bronze coloured bearded irises, done particularly well in Jo Thompson's garden for Wedgwood. Always a grand day out!
