As per usual I have been glued to the television coverage of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, feeling the annual bout of regret that I didn’t buy a ticket. This year the floral marquee has looked particularly stunning and I’m thrilled to see that one of my favourite nurseries Bloms Bulbs has been awarded a Gold Medal, its 63rd since 1948. Quite an achievement.
This beauty came from Bloms a couple of years ago, known as Ministar it’s a dwarf variety of Aquilegia, it grows to around 25cm with mounds of green foliage and gentian blue & cream flowers. Aquilegias are happiest in partial shade and this one really seems to appreciate the cool Spring weather we are currently having.
