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
