A Suffolk flower company are celebrating after its hydrangea hybrid ‘Runaway Bride’ won Plant of the Year at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Five of Ipswich-based Thompson and Morgan’s seven flower entries made it to the 20-strong final shortlist - with ‘Runaway Bride’ winning the gold and the firm’s sunflower ‘Sunbelievable Brown Eyed Girl’ placing third.
Its winning entry is described as a Hydrangea hybrid which blooms from almost all of its lateral stems.
Paul Masters, head of horticulture at Thompson and Morgan, said he was thrilled the firm’s plant had impressed the Chelsea judges.
He said: “We’re completely over the moon to have taken first and third laces in this year’s RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year.

Shrub with beautiful flowers identified
If the leaves turn from green to reddish-purple by mid-June, it's the Schubert chokecherry, also known as Canada Red Cherry. If they remain green, then it's the good old-fashioned green-leaf chokecherry, native to the region, which can either grow as a large shrub, a shrubby tree or a multi-trunked tree reaching 25 feet in height.The ultimate size and form of chokecherry can be managed by pruning. If left to its own devices, it can reach its full potential of 25 feet high and 20 feet wide.Each of the small five-petaled flowers in the long cluster, called a raceme, will become a fruit, which will form the clusters of chokecherries that can be harvested when they turn purple-black in summer.Q: When harvesting asparagus, is it best to cut them or break them off, and how close to the ground should that be done? Is it the end of June or the end of July that you should quit harvesting asparagus? — LeRoy Throlson, Sheyenne, N.D.A: Asparagus spears can be either cut or snapped off, whichever you prefer, and there seems to be no advantage to either method. The suggested point of harvest is 1 inch below soil surface, which is sometimes easier with a knife.July 4 is an easy date to remember for the final asparagus harvest. After Independence Day, allow tops to "fern out," which feeds and replenishes the below-ground roots and crown. Allow the tops to remain intact during winter to catch snow and les... Jun 14, 2018

The garden tour can also help to inspire gardeners with different ideas, as “there are a million ways to assemble a garden,” Machicao said.
Sharon and Joe Blesdoe’s garden features a number of perennials forming the background of the garden. According to their garden tour bio, their favorites include ferns, hostas, daisies, day lilies, roses, sedum, hydrangeas, and false indigo. They also have two compost bins and a rain barrel, and they grow herbs in pots and have a row of tomato plants.
Sue and Norv Deeter, who are Emeritus Master Gardeners, will be showing a garden they transplanted from their previous home in Bethel Township. According to their garden tour bio, they have been “adding to the informal development of the gardens as well as continuing to amend the soil in order to transform it from clay to loam through an annual program of adding compost, peat, and manure.”
They describe their garden as an “eclectic array of perennials, annuals, shrubs, and small trees.” There is also a small vegetable bed in what was once a dog kennel on the property.
Tickets for the garden tour are $15 pre-sale or $20 the day of the tour on June 16.

Floral art and free posies celebrate local flower growers
We’ve seen a lot of growth in the Scottish flower industry in the last five to seven years, going from a handful of growers to almost 70 nowadays. It’s fantastic to see,” said Ms Inglis.“Since the 1970s over 90 per cent of the flowers we see in our flower shops have been imported from all over the world. “They’re often grown in unfavourable environmental conditions and often in countries where it’s not an ethical industry. “As people become more aware of where their products come from they are looking for something that is more local and has a hand-crafted feel to it.“I think aesthetically people’s tastes have also changed over the past decade or so. “We’ve moved from a style that was quite rigid and symmetrical to something softer, looser, more naturalistic, organic, and local flowers really lend themselves to that sort of look because we celebrate the imperfections as opposed to trying to produce long, straight, perfect, regimented stems. This isn’t what’s attractive to us.”Florists from Fife, West Lothian, the Borders, Edinburgh and East Lothian are involved in this weekend’s event.All are members of the UK-wide Flowers From the Farm network, which promotes locally grown plants.Bouquets are being provided by: Keeping the Plot; Millpond Flower Farm; The Country Garden Company; Ode to Flora; Letham Plants; Stemginger Flowers; Cherrytrees; Fleurs Promte; and Pryus.

Bloomsday: what's all the fuss about?
The entire book is being staged at the Abbey Theatre, in an inventive adaptation by Dermot Bolger that mixes music-hall performance traditions with interior monologues (Abbey Theatre, 7.30pm, June 11th-July 27th).
Molly, meanwhile, brings to life the book’s infamous final chapter, placing the bedraggled, lusty Molly Bloom centre stage (Bewleys Cafe Theatre, 1pm, until June 16th). There will be impromptu performances throughout the day in Bewley’s too, and a special dessert, The Bloomsday Hat, for the day that is in it.
Strolling Through Ulysses introduces us to Joyce’s life as well as his most famous work, in the atmospheric environs of the Dublin pubs where much of the book unfolds (various locations, 7.30pm, June 11th-17th), while Ulysses: An Opera (Unitarian Church, 8pm, June 15th and 16th) sets the book to music, an adaptation that Joyce – a fabulous tenor by all accounts – would surely have approved of.
The IFI is screening Sean Walsh’s Bloom, which offers a more straightforward version of the day’s events than the book. And if you are wondering how a day in the life of Dublin today might compare, Piotr Sadowski’s Dublin Only takes a contemporary journey through a D...
