Thoughts on 2011 Chelsea Garden Show
I was just browsing some photos and videos on-line of this year's Chelsea Garden Show, and was wondering if anyone had opinions on this year's winners or the general content of the gardens? It was interesting that the garden awarded the Gold, designed by Cleve West, was based on ruins in Libya, such a coincidence that current events and Chelsea have such a connection! I've only been but one time, back in 2002, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the gardens. There is simply no comparison with the budgets and effort that go into Chelsea compared to our local San Francisco Garden Show, I'll leave it at that.
Anyone seen the press on the gardens, or followed the usual gossip about the designers, sponsors, relative quality of exhibits this year as compared to other years?
