In this part of my Chelsea Flower Show 2022 memories blog, I am going to focus sunny gardens with lots of ideas to take home, with themes of sustainability, rewilding and attracting pollinators, focusing on natural plant communities.

Hope you will enjoy looking into the sunny gardens I have chosen and photographed with my Nikon cameras (Nikon Z7II, Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z750 with Zeiss 100mm f2  macro lens).

It sported herbaceous parterre filled with restful and calming but colourful pastel planting combinations in pale yellow, soft pinks and cream. I loved the candy-red of Peonies and light yellows of Aquilegia growing together.

We could admie Georgian, classically inspired green oak pavilion at the rear with costal planting  in a pastel cool and restul palette of whites, blues and pinks, and trees including Ulmus parvifolia and Pinus sylvestris,  the traditional lifeboat building materials.

Sculptural rough-textured walls comprise generous swathes of colourful meadow planting. I was happy to see Opium poppies, the like of them self-seeding in our allotment, helping to attract bees and other pollinators, among other beautiful wild flowers in rainbow colour among flowing Stipa grasses.

Yet anotehr real-life like recreation of beautiful natural landscape, the winner of the show, and justified fully! A naturally re-wilded landscape in south west England, with a brook flowing through a copse of hawthorn, hazel and field maple beside a winding West-Country stone wall. Pity the real wild beavers were not present :)

I was captivated by vibrant golden and orange (Alstroemria ) planting  with blue accents reflecting the colours of Blue Peter. Lovely ideas to bring home including a roof with meadow planting. The garden was relocated to RHS Bridgewater after the show.
