Chelsea Garden Show: how we were in 2012

Chelsea Flower Show should have started today with its usual lovely spread of garden offices, shepherds' huts, and sheds. Tomorrow, we'll take a look at some of the sheddish-structures that visitors would have been able to see, but today here is a look back at what was on offer in 2012, 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.

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

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.
