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
