I have gardening on my mind this week as we are heading to the Clubhouse community garden in Queen’s Park this Friday.

For inspiration I watched some of the Chelsea Flower Show last week and loved Sarah Price’s garden for M&G. She is known for her ‘painterly’ approach and originally trained as an artist. It was clear to see in her ‘impressionist’ planting style. There were euphorbias creating a soft blur and poppies providing shots of bright colour.  On the show she talked about how she had been inspired by Monet’s later paintings at Giverny, and in particular the Agapanthus Triptych.

Back to the Clubhouse community garden and we’re getting ready for summer. Just before Christmas we planted the new garden with silver birch trees, narcissi and tulips. Now the last tulips are over and the weeds are taking hold. When we gathered to discuss the summer planting, the young residents voted for sunflowers. So on Friday we will be planting a sunflower garden. I hope Vincent Van Gogh would have approved.
