I have to admit I have never had the inclination to go to Chelsea Flower Show, but when Helen Carnac invited me I jumped at the chance. She is one of the featured artists in the Artisan Garden. I found this area to be my favourite, not just because Helen is based there in her cool little shed, but it seemed less formal, and more natural than the rest of the show. Got to meet one of Helen’s friends: Gary Breeze who had just won gold for his work ‘Antithesis Of Sarcophagi’. Did not see one Garden Gnome, but loads of TV presenters!
