A Dome Greenhouse in London


We saw this unusual, dome greenhouse at a NGS open evening a couple of weeks ago in London.  The main drawcard of the Clapham garden at this time of year is a sea of 1,500 tulips, but the late spring meant that they were not yet in bloom (it is open again this week for tulip viewing).  The visit was not wasted as we were able to admire this lovely greenhouse.   Steve took these images on his iphone.

RHS Great London Plant Fair


I popped over to the RHS Horticultural Halls last night after work to check out the RHS Great London Plant Fair. Got to say, with all of this dreadful weather it was such a pleasure to see all the spring bulbs on display and the scent really hit you as you walked into the halls.  I wish I could have made a night of it as they had a brilliant band playing, the Gin Garden were there and there was so much to look at.  But, I had another appointment so off I went just as things were getting going.  I took a quick vine video but can’t for the life of me get it to embed, so please do click here to see it.
