Plankbridge Bothy at Chelsea Flower Show

One of the garden buildings you're going to see a lot of in the media coverage of this year's Chelsea Flower Show is the RHS Bothy from Plankbridge (almost inevitably described as 'covetable' by many journalists). The new design is a collaboration between the two and is launched in the middle of the Great Pavilion, "perfect as a home office, garden retreat, music room or art studio" according to the RHS.

It's part of the ‘Women in Hortculture’ displayand  is made entirely in home-grown UK timber, with sweet chestnut windows, door and internal wall lining, a potting bench-inspired desk made from ash, and an ash floor with a neutral ash finish. Details include replicas of Gertrude Jekyll motif sketches housed in the RHS Lindley Library Collections, desk brackets forged over Dorset charcoal which were based on the boot scraper outside RHS Wisley's Arts & Crafts Old Laboratory, and the whole thing is painted in Farrow and Ball's Brinjal.

Alos look out for Plankbridge's tradestand AR 640  in Ranelagh Gardens.
