Chelsea Flower Show 2015

If you have never been to the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show then this year is not one to be missed.  With lots of creative and state-of the-art ideas for your outside living area, there are also no less than fourteen innovative entries into Garden Product of the Year, all of whom will be exhibiting at the show. Amongst these new ideas we love the Agralan Potato Pot which saves time by enabling growers to check on their crop of Yukon Gold without the effort of digging up and re-planting needlessly.  A new designed, light-weight wheelbarrow is great for...

London Easter Fun

Easter is the best excuse to overindulge in chocolate, but, let’s not forget, it also brings the first of our bank holiday weekends and a great opportunity to spend time with our family and friends.

An open top London bus, with 70 different stops, takes you past the Tower of London, Shakespeare’s Globe and the various vibrant shopping regions such as Oxford Street and Piccadilly.  When an attraction appeals to you...

Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday is a Christian holiday falling on the fourth Sunday in Lent. However, its origins could lay in Roman Times when Lady’s Day was celebrated on the vernal equinox. Or it could hark back to sixteenth century when worshipers were said to have gone ‘a-mothering’ when they went to pray at their mother church on Laetare Sunday. Later on in history, when young people were in service to affluent families, they would be granted a day off in order for them to attend church with their own mothers and family members, often the only time that whole families could...

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year, based on the lunar and solar calendars, varies each year, always falling between late January and mid-February and represented by one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. This year heralds the Year of the Sheep or Goat. Children born in this year (and past years of 1967, 1979, 1991 or 2003) are polite, clever, kind-hearted and wise but can also be indecisive, so probably best to let someone else book the activities of the day! Major celebrations are planned in London, the largest outside of Asia, with thousands of spectators expected to converge on Trafalgar...
