Garden offices at Malvern Spring Show: roundup

We're horribly late to the game with this look at the shedlike atmospheres on show at the recent Spring Malvern Show. Top of the pile was the two-storey Garden for Life (above) from Graduate Gardeners which won a Gold Medal and The Best in Show award: it featured a large A frame building for shedworking, relaxing and general family use and included lots of ecofriendly elements (solarpowered water feature, rainwater harvesting, fruit/veg patch, etc).

 Also attractive was The Shepherd's Garden by Caves Folly Nurseries which featured a shepherd's hut from Hollow Ash Shepherds' Huts and indeed real lambs (it was also promoting the British wool industry). If you were at Hay Festival this year you may have seen the Hollow Ash show hut where it was used as a press interview room - visitors included the Archbishop of Canterbury, Michael Morpurgo and Maureen Lipman.
