Sheds at Chelsea Flower Show: photo essay

The Shedworking staff had a most enjoyable day at the Chelsea Flower Show yesterday and took the opportunity to take in the many shedlike atmospheres on display. Here's a quick look at some of our favourites, starting above with Jo Thompson's lovely caravan-centred show garden which won a silver gilt.

There were plenty of people enjoying the Rooftop Workplace of Tomorrow garden which won silver.

Below is the shaded cabanon in the L'Occitane Immortelle Garden

And here is Plankbridge's shepherd's hut in their own silver-winning garden. We stopped for a long chat with Richard from Plankbridge about its construction.

Vicky Harris’s stone crofter’s hut in her Naturally Dry garden

The Artisan Retreats area where five sturdy Malvern Collection summerhouses were turned into working spaces.

 Nigel Dunnett’s RBD Blue Water Garden featured a lovely conical-roofed trullo, a traditional hut from Puglia.

And finally, the shepherd’s stone hut in Borut Benedejcic’s Pepa’s Story Artisan Garden.

    Even in my lovely sunny home office with the windows open (a rare event in a north facing room...) so the flies can exit without my having to assist (violently...) I regret to say I am now experiencing severe shed envy.
