“We could make it ourselves.” Five words uttered by a Yorkshireman. Those of you that know (& you know who you are), will know what that means. Five little words resulting in conservatively well over 300 hours of work, fingerprints ruined, cuticles ripped, fingers bleeding and that was well before...

This week’s ode to the Chelsea Flower Show comes in shape of Kate thinking back on her 2014 garden with Alan Titchmarsh. Kate chats about the build, every Chelsea garden build is as memorable as the finished article, they each seem to have their own personality largely depending on the weather...

In honour of Chelsea tradition and all that makes the show a wonderful time, Kate sat down with her team (via a well-known online meeting platform that rhymes with ‘room’) to reminisce about past gardens and the lessons they have taught them.  Every Chelsea garden finds a place in your...

Another Chelsea has drawn to its inevitable close and we are delighted to share the pictures of our Greenfingers Charity garden with you all. The build was an exhausting one but we were proud of the final result. The team all did an amazing job and if we collapsed in...
