Sheds at Chelsea Flower Show 2013

We're only about a month away from this year's Chelsea Flower Show - last year was a particularly fine one for sheds, garden offices, caravans and indeed shepherds' huts, but at the moment 2013 doesn't look like being a classic shedlike year for the show, although the Trailfinders Australian Garden by Phillip Johnson (no relation), above, looks intriguing and features a studio structure.

Chris Beardshaw's Arthritis Research UK Garden features what is described as a "contemporary retreat" which sounds promising while the B&Q Sentebale Forget-Me-Not Garden should feature a shedlike round house.

Perhaps most shedworkingesque of all is Stoke-on-Trent's Story of Transformation Garden which takes in a massive pottery bottle kiln, see here bottom left.

Of course there's something for the children too. The NSPCC's Garden of Magical Childhood designed by Adam Woolcott and Jonathan Smith will have a treehouse.

And finally, An Alcove Garden designed by Kazuyuki Ishihara puts a traditional tatami room centrestage.
