Chelsea Here We Come!

So proud to say that we have made it to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for the second year running

After last year I didn't know if we would manage to pull it off again, or even better it. But it is with great pride that I can announce that we have managed it! It really did turn out to be the day that I had dreamed of, with initial ideas starting last October would you believe. The dream and the reality part worked, which I wanted. Fantasy on the garden and a real Madhatter's tea party on the other.

I am so pleased that Jo Wesley (Allotment Jo, off BBC2's Big Allotment Challenge) accepted my invitation to attend. Thank you for taking the time out to visit us. Also thanks to Councillor Mike Wallis for attending and especially Barbara and David Henshaw (Owners of Trowell Garden Centre) for your very generous donations to us. Also couldn't have done it without Tania Simpson, manager at Trowell

Thank you to John Clowes and Jane Hartley from Scott's Miracle Gro for coming to visit us from Surrey and also judge our entry for the Miracle Growers Competition. A special thank you to Laura and Russ Leatherland for all their help and support and wonderful presentation for the Madhatter's Tea Party

Thanks to the Mayor of Erewash Val Clare for opening our school event. Also to Simon the Miracle Gro merchandiser for all his help

Many thanks to Maggie Throup the next conservative, parliamentary candidate for attending and also bringing along The Rt. Hon John Hayes, the Senior Parliamentary Advisor to the Prime Minister.

It was a wonderful afternoon, one of which I will never forget!
