Give us ‘real’ gar­dens

Amateur Gardening - - Your Letters -

HAV­ING read Peter Seabrook’s com­ments about Chelsea (AG, 19 May), I could not agree more! We should see a re­turn to more ‘or­di­nary gar­dens’ which mean some­thing to the or­di­nary gar­dener!

Hav­ing seen the pre­view to this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, it would ap­pear that we are to be treated to more lumps of con­crete, strik­ingly sim­i­lar to the Gold win­ner last year, which looked like a ceme­tery and of no horticultural in­ter­est at all. We want plants and flow­ers, with the cam­era re­main­ing on them for more than a fleet­ing mo­ment and a lot less talk. Who needs this psy­cho-bab­ble and does ev­ery gar­den have to have some high-and-mighty mean­ing? Please tell them to come back down to earth.
