It’s early June and the baby squirrels have commandeered the ground feeder just out on the patio here at twool HQ.
We’re having the smallest of sit-downs, just for a mo. To catch our breath, to make some calls, to take stock. Literally. Chelsea Flower Show is huge for us, it’s such a massive show, with high standards, long days and a lot of preparation before the out breath and satisfaction of a job well done.
We always meet wonderful people from all walks of life and from all around the world. For one week, we join the fantastic atmosphere in SW3 and work our woolly socks off!
This year was particularly special as we were sponsored by that lovely lot over at The Organic Gardening Catalogue. A huge thanks to the team, without their sponsorship, we’d really struggle to get our stand together.
Thanks to Suttons for the planters, the Primula Red Hot Pokers were a huge success!
Thanks also to Greenman Tools for the handles and tools for displaying our products – and loaning us all round good egg and chief ice-cream fetcher, Adam.
The hard work paid off as Tom and the stand were awarded 3 star gold!
The twool Chelsea headlines included the launch of the new twool hat range! Watch this space – more news on these fab twool hats as the summer goes on.
Simon Lycett was his ever-brilliant self and used our twool to tie and bind the royal posies for Chelsea, always a pleasure to see twool in action!
As we packed up and dusted off the Plane tree dust we didn’t have time to be sad at saying ciao to SW3 for another year as we had to prep for the first ever Buckfast Abbey Garden Fayre. We wanted to do our bit to support the Abbey in their millennial year and the day didn’t disappoint. A far cry from Chelsea it brought the best of the South West together for a day of Morris dancing, local sausages and the most glorious sunny day. We had a great day, here’s hoping it’s the first of many!
What next? Never ones to rest on our laurels, we’re now gearing up for Hampton Court Flower Show, a first for us but we’re looking forward it. If you’re planning on going, please come and say hello, we’d love to see you! We’ll be on stand 133…
Meanwhile, our farmers are busy as shearing is underway across the moor – twool in the making!
