Sloane Square Showstoppers


Sloane Square has a fab new planting which was turning heads when I made my way to Chelsea Flower Show last month.

Plenty of people were crossing the road for a closer look and then taking photographs, just like I did.


It may have had a flashier, tropical themed cousin around the corner, but unlike this Chelsea in Bloom winner...


... it forms a longer lasting feature on the Square (at least until the store opens in September) and is designed to help save the bees :)


I hope it'll be a permanent feature - watch this space.

  1. Wonderful. It's so inspiring that people have decided to do this, and done it so successfully. Let's hope the idea spreads. CJ xx

  2. We walked past the big wall one the other day, somehow I managed to miss the planting around the shop entrance. Maybe dodging cars when crossing the zebra stripe gave us tunnel vision :-) - looks fab.

  3. My thoughts must have been focussed on getting to the showground as I completely missed this visual treat. I plan to visit the Chelsea Physic Garden soon so I'll look out for the green wall; hope it will still be there!

  4. It's a shame that we don't do more like this even if it's on a smaller, less ambitious scale. Flighty xx
