Lifestyle Out and about

Chelsea flower show 2022 featuring small garden ideas.

I’ve just returned from the fabulous Chelsea flower show 2022. Love this beautiful floral installation by Veevers Carter in celebration of the Queen’s passion for nature.

This brings me back to the floral display of the Queen’s head when I attended Chelsea Flower Show 2016.

Rather than show you all the show gardens, I decided to just home in on my favourite finds this year.

Now this Sanctuary garden called “Out Of The Shadows” by Kate Gould Gardens is one I covet

It’s a small contemporary garden with a whole lot of luxury lifestyle in one. There is a state of the art jacuzzi in black in the back, a firepit with seating, exercise bars and a yoga space in a tropical setting.

Love this water feature with its scale like tiles. It reminds me of a little onsen spa wash station in Japan before getting into a hot bath.Morris and Co gardenChelsea Flower show 2022This is the Morris and Co. show garden inspired by the traditional designs of William Morris. I was particularly interested in the small garden designs this year, so the Balcony and Container garden displays was the place to go.

This is the Wild Kitchen Garden by designer Ann Treneman.

Chelsea Flower show 2022Ann’s garden brings wild edible plants and trees into a small urban setting. It’s a garden for those who enjoy cooking, a place to forage and harvest.Here’s another garden that has inspired me. This is The Cirrus Gardens by The Cloud Gardener UK.

The Cirrus Garden is the culmination of the best elements from an 18th floor balcony garden. The Cloud Gardener started growing his garden during the first lockdown in March 2020.

This is proof that container gardening can work in small spaces, and that success can come with passion and perseverance, even on a small budget.Chelsea Flower show 2022This is The Blue Garden designed by Tom Wilkes-Rios.

It celebrates what is possible in a small space. Love all the cacti and Mediterranean warmth of the orange paint.

Now we go indoors.

There was a tablescape exhibition by various floral designers which were breathtakingly beautiful.

This is an all encompassing nature inspired  dining experience called Wild Melody by Acacia Creative Studio. Flowers emerge through the raw wood table, trellises and candlebra above.

An absolute work of art don’t you think?

A country table setting surrounded by consumable home grown plants. So pretty don’t you think?

Well, that concludes my post on this year’s Chelsea Flower Show 2022. There was so much to see, more than I can write about here.

If you have a chance, do go and take in the wonderful experience.

Have a lovely day all.
