Sheds at RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Garden offices and sheds are a bit thin on the ground at this year's show which runs next week in the main show gardens. One garden worth a look if you're visiting is the Green Switch Designed by Kazuyuki Ishihara - it includes a two-storey shed-like atmosphere with a green sedum roof. The top section is a tea room with glass walls which also features a glass shower room... 

Of course there will be plenty of microarchitecture elsewhere at the show including the shepherd's hut below from Plankbridge, pictured here nearing completion back at their HQ.

Also keep an eye out for the Artisan Studios section, six garden buildings with arts and crafts people at work inside including sculptor Laura Jane Wylder creating a life-sized female artwork, fabric designer Natasha Hulse, ceramicist Corrie Bain, textilist Lola Lely, steam-bent wood from Charlie Whinney, and last but not at all least, Malvern Garden Buildings will exhibit a studio inspired by Virginia Woolf's writing lodge at Monk's House to mark the 90th anniversary of the publication of her essay A Room of One's Own. The interior will feature objects from the writer's era, researched with help from the National Trust team at Monk's House and the Virginia Woolf Appreciation Society of Great Britain.
