THE SHOW GARDENS
The Royal Chelsea Flower in London ended yesterday. I followed it with pleasure on television, wishing I could be there, but got so much satisfaction from just watching the highlights each day. Incredible.
So from the UK here is the link to the videos.
PLANTS IN SPACE
One aspect which was shown which illustrates the diversity of the show was an area entitled “Rocket Science”, sponsored by the UK Space Agency. This sought to explore and encourage schoolchildren to participate in gardening and consider ideas for our future colonisation in space, for which relevant plants from the simplest algae will be crucial. Fascinating.
