A reminder that next week, on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd February, the RHS will be marking the imminent arrival of spring with their London Plant and Design Show. There will be ravishing displays of spring bulbs and winter flowering shrubs from the country’s top nurseries, plus a preview of this year’s Chelsea and Hampton Court Palace show gardens. If you’re anything like me it will be impossible to come away empty handed or uninspired. This year’s show will incorporate London Potato Days; visitors will be able to chose from 75 varieties of seed potatoes, take part in chitting workshops and listen to talks about potato growing. In celebration of British chip week, there will also be freshly cooked fish and chips, served in traditional cardboard boxes. Try keeping me away!
