From embracing buttercups to candy-coloured planting, these are the highlights of this year’s show
Green was the dominant theme at Chelsea, literally and metaphorically. Main Avenue, home to the major show gardens, was awash with broad-leaved trees among a calming palette of green, pale yellow and white flowers, including swathes of cow parsley, euphorbias and meadowsweet. Andy Sturgeon’s M&G garden was a masterclass in the green sanctuary: echo the look in your own garden by underplanting a hornbeam, elder or field maple with the green-flowered Mathiasella bupleuroides, marsh spurge (Euphorbia palustris), Californian poppy ‘Ivory Castle’ and airy grass Melica altissima ‘Alba’. For shadier spots, try an angelica (A. archangelica) underplanted with pachysandra and rodgersias.
