Gwenda and myself with the Presidents Vase. The vase was given by the RHS President for the Best Horticultural display at Chelsea within the Horticultural Marquee. The Best display was chosen by the President himself.
I was very pleased with the leeks considering it was only the third week of May. Grown on a bench in Link-a-Bord there was hardly any bulbous bottom to them.
An excellent dish of my favourite Second Early potato - Kestrel. Grown on concrete floor in a cold greenhouse in 45 gallon plastic drums cut in half and filled with Multi Purpose compost, five tubers in each half drum.
Close up of the centre section of the display. My Own re selected seed of Own Long Black Beetroot, Item 3017, looked particularly well.
Who said flowers were more colourful then vegetables - I beg to differ as this picture shows.The white potato Winston (in the barrow) were the best I have ever staged at Chelsea.
