Gaze Burvill

Shopping at Chelsea Flower Show

In the barbecue stakes there’s a £17,000 model on the Gaze Burvill stand on Main Avenue, of course you can make your own for a few quid and have a lot of fun doing it, but I’m told that this little beauty makes the food taste better. It should do at that price. But if you are in the market for a garden kitchen this is a great place to see what’s feasible and if you’ve got the budget, start shopping for something at the top of the range. The handcrafted British Oak furniture is simply divine. MA430

David Harber
Garden sculpture from David Harber.

Many of the trade stands are designed with a garden setting to add to the rich tapestry of Chelsea Flower Show. Down Main Avenue it’s hard to tell them apart from some of the show gardens. David Harber has some magnificent sundials, water features and sculptures within a beautifully manicured garden setting. MA431
