National Gardening Week 2013 - Shabby Chic Inspiration

Finally! The sun is out, the temperature is rising and it just about feels as though Spring is here! For those of you lucky enough to have a garden (I wish I did!), now is the perfect to get out there and start tidying up the trees, hedges and flowers, and get your garden ready for Summer!

This week (15th to 21st April) marks the Royal Horticultural Society's National Gardening Week 2013, and this year the RHS is focussing on Wildflowers. These flowers, just like every other, play a vital part in nature - providing pollen and a habitat for insects - but yet there has been a massive reduction in natural Wildflower meadows in our Countrysides.

So, the RHS is asking us to give nature a helping hand by planting our own Wildflowers - whether it be in a plant pot or your own mini meadow! By no means am I a gardener, but seeing this campaign reminded me of something I saw a few months ago which, I think, would be perfect for a garden make-over.. a shabby chic garden!


Back in October, DC and I went on a day trip to Butterfly World in St Albans whilst visiting family down south. These gardens were part of the Designer Gardens exhibit and I just love how whimsical and romantic they are. It's almost fairytale-esque which, at the minute, I just can't get enough of! Granted, it may look a little overgrown and messy, but that is the beauty of it - and the beauty of Wildflowers too.

If I had a shabby corner tucked away in my dream garden, I would absolutely cherish it.
