What not to miss this year
The plants and products to look out for this year
You’ll find camassias galore on the stand of specialist nursery Hare Spring Cottage Plants, which is exhibiting at Chelsea for the first time. Look out for the creamy-white, semi-double Camassia leichtlinii ‘Semiplena’ (left) and the mid-blue beauty, C. leichtlinii ‘Blue Candle’. GPF199
• David Harber was inspired by the phases of the moon and the shadows of an eclipse to create his new sculpture The Eclipse (left). Interlocking rings in sapphire-blue stainless steel, with contrasting gold leaf on the inner surface, create a harmonious whole. MA332
• The centrepiece of Nigel Dunnett’s RHS Greening Grey Britain garden (part of the RHS stand) is a bespoke edible table. Made from reclaimed timber, it seats up to ten people and features espaliered fruit trees and herbs. The garden also includes an apartment block with balconies, and a 12m wall covered in wildflowers and street art scenes (left) by Sheffield artist Jo Peel (jopeel.com).
• The lightweight oak frame for this dark-topped table (£1,248), and the oak chairs (£792 each) that tuck neatly beneath it, make the Gaze Burvill Levity dining set by Sussex-based designer Katie Walker an elegant option for rooftop or other smaller terraces. MA333
