This year at Chelsea Flower Show I was lucky to be asked by One World to plant up their stand showcasing their furniture and interior homeware. One World have been working with Kew Gardens to create botanical prints in pictures and furnishings so we extended that theme focusing on leafy exotics. Once we’d decided on the pink paint for the walls, I set about sourcing some beautiful indoor and outdoor plants. Many somewhat hard to find in cultivation including: Fatsia polycarpa ‘Green Fingers’, Schefflera taiwaniana, Livistona rotundifolia, Sansevieria ‘Metallica’, Strelitzia nicolai, many Tillandsia air plants and Marimo underwater moss balls. Gunnera manicata and Dicksonia antarctica were our centre pieces while I filled every nook and cranny with almost 100 rare ferns. The stand was awarded 4 stars.
