National Shed Week: Hampton Court Palace Flower Show

Shedworking's official Garden Show Editor Emma Townshend has been scouting around this year's Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, scheduled this year to coincide with National Shed Week, and has come back as always with some beauties. Above are examples from the Museum of Garden History's stand in the Plant Heritage Marquee, the one on the right a recreation of a 1970s shed complete with space hopper. Below, a fine example of an authentic Arctic shed or 'kota' by Garden Exteriors. Standing 3.7m tall, it is constructed with 45mm x 145mm double tongue and groove, half round profile, arctic pine from sustainable forests in northern Finland within the Arctic Circle.You can, and should, read more at Emma's Baklava Shed Coalition blog which is almost certainly the jolliest gardening blog on the entire interweb.
