Sunday morning - clear, sunny and gorgeous. A good night last night, it always is when the exhibit is complete and you are pleased with what you have achieved.

Sunday is a slightly strange day, very satisfying and rewarding, but also rather sad when the staging team head for home, leaving just a few of us to be joined by others who will man the exhibit for the next six days.

We’ve had so many enthusiastic comments about our work I know we are in for a wonderful week.

The Scotts Miracle-Gro team are here to set up the video equipment ready for filming in the ‘Secret Garden Diary Room’ and the ‘Thrones of Knowledge’ are in place ready for press day. You will be able to pick up on the first group of tips and advice from Monday afternoon onwards.

The judging begins mid-Monday morning, so lots to do; sweeping, tidying and finishing touches. Last job for the day was to film a walkthrough the whole exhibit which I think shows it off to its best advantage - seeing how the planting works together - and it gives you an idea of the scale of the site- 3500 plants!
