Here are two bonus photos from our Chelsea Fringe project ‘You Should Have Seen It Last Week…’
The first picture is from day 15, 12 noon. The peony is just starting to open.
The second picture is from the same day, at 4pm. Look has far it opened up in just 4 hours!
How long did it stay this beautiful…? Uhmm, not so long, as temperatures soared to 30 degrees celsius. To see the whole sequence, visit Willow’s Chelsea Fringe page now!

I was asked by the European Boxwood & Topiary Society to help out with answering a common question – How to sharpen your shears? So we spent a fun day making a video, that hopefully will help you make sure you have sharp, shiny blades to do your topiary pruning with. And you can find here more examples of the topiary I make with my sharp blades.
You can get a ticket for this new talk I’m giving at the European Boxwood And Topiary Society here – TALK TICKETS It is on the 25th August at 6pm. It should be great fun and I’m very excited to be sharing some recent thoughts about topiary with people – and how it might work in a modern garden.
