A Bronze Award at the Chelsea Flower Show 2013 for the Sonic Pangea Garden

The Sonic Pangea Garden that Stefano Passerotti and I built and designed was awarded a bronze award in the Fresh Gardens category at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

A bronze medal at my first RHS Chelsea Flower Show and I'm still reeling from the emotions. Exhausted, elated and nearly tearful at the thought of breaking up the garden. It's been a great learning experience.

 The warm comraderie during the buid up of the garden, made up for the atrociously cold and miserable weather.

Despite the gardens being on show for only a week, they are built to the highest standard and you can learn more in a week by watching some of the greatest contractors at work than you can from any course textbook.

 Tomorrow I fly back smuggling an armful of plants in a twin pram. The twins will be checked in and loaded into the stow.

Adieu Chelsea! But if beckoned again by the RHS and sponsorhip it's arrivederci.
