For those of you fortunate to travel to England this year in May, be sure to check out the RHS Chelsea Flower Show from May 22-26th. The display gardens look like works of art and inspirational guide posts to help you transform your patch of earth into a masterpiece.
Among the award-winning exhibits from last year's show, the M &G Garden stands out as a "modern take on a traditional garden."

It could be the playful and artful blend of ornamentals and edible plants, with French lavender underplanting potted citrus tees. Or perhaps it's the graceful cabbages and beans happily mingling with clematis and roses. No matter. Pure delight.
Whatever your fruit, veggie, flower or herb preference, this garden is a working model for those of us not so inclined to add "Royal" to our names (as Royals are apt to do when they visit Chelsea.)
Whether you have a large garden or a small balcony garden, add herbs for color, fragrace, health and beauty. Plus, they fit nicely in any size container, border or space. Tuck in some veggies and adorn with berries and flowers and voila!- you'll have a garden that's fit for a King or Queen!
