I’ve seen a number of unusual planters: teacups, bathroom suites, cars, trucks, tyres, socks, handbags, upholstered chairs… if it will hold soil, someone will think of putting plants in it.
This flowerbed from the Chatsworth Flower Show was along the jokey side of those lines. Lupins, foxgloves, geums and the odd delphinium filled to overflowing the inside of a white bed frame that was sweetly embellished with hearts.
The flowers looked far too perky for sleeping – some seemed more on the verge of clambering out – but I suppose as darkness fell and the crowds left, things could have changed.
