Sun canopies at RHS Chelsea 2010. Jo Angell design. Love her garden accessories.

During  Chelsea set up I had a chance to wander – this garden design by Jo Thompson was one of my favourites. The garden is for Thrive – an organisation set up for  disabled gardeners.  The green wall has nothing to do with Woolly Pockets but I did take the opportunity to explain the superior qualities of the Pockets (plants never become pot bound for one). But what really caught my eye was the fabulous shade canopy by Jo Angell.

Fabulous shapes and colours are created – similar to a  tree canopy – all with a highly artificial material. Love the contrast.

Beautiful and exciting. Garden accessories need more designs like this.
