Hester Digs Chelsea - Things to take home (4/4)

Dig It! // Gardening & Green Spaces// Community// Events // May 25, 2018

 What were the big themes or take-homes from this year's Chelsea Flower Showthat you can try in your garden right now? Screens and water for the hardscaping and yellow in any form at all. For the plants, foxgloves, lupins, peonies, roses, geums (try Geum "Totally Tangerine") and Trollius ("Cheddar" or "New Moon" are perfect additions) as well as box replacements like Ilex crenata.
