|gardening in shade|
From show gardens to plant stalls - and much else besides; there has been so much to see at the Malvern Spring Gardening Show. A quick glance at any one exhibit, and you may miss the subtlety. It's taken me almost four days and I still have not covered it all. I loved the way some garden designers tackled a tricky subject - what to do with a plot that is shady for most of the day. Alex Bell's 'Fade to Shade' (above) presented a range of ideas and solutions for such difficult corners. Somewhere to sit and relax without overmuch hard landscaping, softened by lush and soft planting.
