THE FINAL SHOW OF THE YEAR OR THE GRAVEYARD SHIFT

November 26th, 2015

Well we thought we were done and dusted for the year ,as we finished Malvern Autumn,only to get back to an email from vincent square Rhs headquaters to say we were in the last show of the year there end of October,so we had to think quick because we had already cut down our large display plants ,so i thought its near Halloween ,so we did a graveyard with lots of gravestones and on each gravestone was a variety of climber growing on ,and carved into the gravestone was there name and it said HERE GROWS CLEMATIS DIANA`S DELIGHT 2003 the year it was introduced ,and in the middle was a witches cauldron bubbling away with mist spilling over the sides and drifting amongst the stones ,it was a great way to end the year .see you in 2016 ,HAPPY CHRISTMAS

The Pirate ship and its voyages

July 23rd, 2015

so the story begins on a cold February day at RHS HEADQUATERS in London,they have decided they would like a bit more innovation in the displays at the shows and we are nominated to do Malvern Spring Flower Show,soI get back home that evening and start to think what to do ,so i delve into the murky waters of Clematis past to find out they first arrived on our shores in 1569 by Henry Morgan and his Crew ,so we think we have a plan lets do a shipwreck from 1569 with Clematis clambering all over it and coming out the cannon holes,and of course a treasure chest with diamonds doublooms and clematis,so that is what we did ,so at malvern we launched and sunk are CLEMATIS SHIPWRECK TO COUNTRYWIDE ACCLAIM ON TV AND OF COURSE AT MALVERN AND EVEN THE JUDGES LIKED IT SILVER GILT.
