A wreath is more than a ring of evergreen foliage for your front door! It is the first hearty, merry welcome to all who arrive at your home. Treat yourself and your festive guest to a specially designed christmas wreath this year!

For Christmas 2016, SKGD will be creating a collection of hand crafted door wreaths using willow, moss and top quality noble fir. Each wreath will embody one of three key Christmas trends highlighted by StaceyKath for 2016.

Plant of the Month: August

Summer gardens are just reaching their peaks and my plant of the month for August has to be one that truly reaches heights.

I have the fortune of working for a nursery who supplies plants nationwide and daily get to see oceans of beautiful plants all ready to be shipped off to garden centres and supermarkets.

My plant of the month for August is:

How to build a show garden in 9 DAYS!! AND win Silver!

RePerspective3

“She’s mad!!” I hear you cry…and you could be right, but that’s neither here nor there.


The RHS Malvern build has kicked off brilliantly and we are now reaching the end of week 2 of construction. There have been highs and lows and ‘tearing your hair out moments’ just as my fabulous mentor Caroline Tatham said there would be. It has been an amazing experience though and I feel so honoured to be undertaking the build in support of Marie Curie Cancer Care because life is the most precious thing there ever was and you must grasp it and squeeze every last drop out of it.

 

“So what’s this building a show garden in 9 days business then if you’ve had 2 weeks already?”. Believe me, I wish I could be at the build every day but unfortunately I still have to pay my rent and neither of my part time jobs were about to allow me to take a month off…that’s just unheard of in retail!

 

Now admittedly I may be jumping the gun as I’ve still potentially 3-4 days of the build left and it could all go tits up but we won’t dwell on that… mainly because I’m too laid back to know how to! Anyway, join me as I run through my 9 day build and watch Let’s Get You Home in support of Marie Curie Cancer Care, designed by me, appear before your very eyes!
