Chelsea Flower Show preview: The Living Office

While it doesn't look like being a vintage Chelsea for shedworking, the idea of mixing the concepts of 'garden' and 'office' will be highlighted in the Great Pavilion thanks to office planting specialists Indoor Garden Design and office furniture designers Vitra who have put together what they describe as Chelsea's first 'interior garden', called The Living Office. This display, a kind of 'working sanctuary' will outline the benefits of adding plants into an office environment, something which shedworkers of course already know lots about, and will feature a living wall and a natty system which will grow your lunch including strawberries, tomatoes, mint and chives. Also look out for a grey water filtration system (more commonly known as a fish tank) to feed the plants and a compost bin for both recycling and ambient heating. If you're going, it's at Stand K7.
