Fringe ben­e­fits

Country Life Every Week - - Chelsea Flower Show Preview -

The Chelsea Fringe, brain­child of gar­den­ing com­men­ta­tor (and for­mer COUN­TRY LIFE staff mem­ber) Tim Richard­son, is now in its sixth year, grow­ing from strength to strength with a host of projects both witty and wor­thy, across Bri­tain and fur­ther afield. Event cat­e­gories in­clude art in­stal­la­tions, com­mu­nity gar­dens, court­yards, ed­i­ble dis­plays, ed­u­ca­tional, flo­ral and ‘muddy’—any­thing imag­i­na­tive with a gar­den or planty theme. ‘The Chelsea Fringe is a true fringe fes­ti­val, based on the Ed­in­burgh model,’ says Tim, ‘in that noth­ing is com­mis­sioned or curated. If it’s on topic, le­gal and in­ter­est­ing, it can go in the Fringe, no mat­ter how out­landish or odd it may seem.’ For up-to-date de­tails of events na­tion­wide, visit
