I loved wandering around capturing all of the beautifully coloured blooms – especially the multi colored array of lupins which dazzled the crowds. On the Saturday at exactly 4pm the annual plant sale kicks off and the whole tent erupts with noise. It is one of the craziest sites you will see, with people jostling to scoop up any bargains and struggling away with humungous plants; often larger than themselves. Anyone who doesn’t have a chauffeur (which is most of us) can be seen ambling to Sloane Square underground, and it must be the most bizarre site for anyone passing through as the platforms are filled with showgoers and their purchases. This year I brought back one of the lovely bright sunflowers (seen above) from the Marks and Spencers stand, but it’s since perished which doesn’t say much for my plant tending skills.
