Hi everyone, welcome to my first actual blog post on my Home and Garden blog. I’m really excited to have my own blog, and be writing about my favourite subject, gardening.
I started gardening with my Mum, back when I was just a wee boy. She would go out in the afternoon, after collecting me and my siblings from school and sometimes I would go out with her and help her weed, or sow seeds, or climb up ladders and cut down the lilacs from the lilac tree. Basically anything which she couldn’t manage or she got bored of easily. I wasn’t too fond of gardening from the get go, and only went into gardening as a way to make money helping out neighbours and family friends. I grew to love gardening and now own my own Landscape gardening company, which I absolutely love.
One of my favourite activities all year are the RHS gardening shows. I always go to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and the Chelsea Flower show. This year there is a new addition to the gardening line up. The RHS London Christmas show, which is held in Lawrence Hall in Westminster over the weekend before Christmas. It’s free to attend for all members, and 6 pounds if you book in advance, or 9 pounds on the door.
There will be lots of different items available for sale, including many different varieties of plants and flowers, as well as different foods and sundries. Perfect for some last minute Christmas shopping opportunities, as well as being a great place to buy yourself a christmas present, I know I will be!
Are any of you planning on visiting the RHS London Christmas Show this year? What are you hoping to find or see? I’m hoping to find a new orchid for my collection. Jon.
