Simply Roses is offering GARDENERS ILLUSTRATED readers a Gardener’s Hand Care collection that makes the perfect treat for all rose enthusiasts.
Simply Roses focus on all things roses. There is a floral design service, which uses freshly cut roses, and a planting design service that gives you options for including roses and other scented plants in your garden whatever its size – or even designing new rose planting schemes from scratch.
Here's an update on our 'Spot the Gnome' competition that appeared in our special Chelsea Flower Show coverage for the June digital edition.
Our Spot the Gnome competition (found on our June digital edition) is now closed. Thank you to those who entered. Unfortunately no one got the answer correct (admittedly it was quite tricky to spot all of the gnome's appearances!). So, we're going to keep back the prize of a Haws copper watering can and copy of Piet Oudolf and Noel Kingsbury's Planting: A New Perspective for a future competition.
Be part of the cultural gathering, held in the historic Italian city of Bergamo, to celebrate urban environments and natural landscapes through garden design, architecture, ecology, art and education.
I Maestri del Paesaggio: International Meeting of the Landscape and Garden,

While the Chelsea Flower Show is busy celebrating a magnificent 100 years, its more alternative younger cousin, the Chelsea Fringe, is gearing up for its second year.
If you are in London for the Chelsea Flower Show, it's well worth popping along to some of the Fringe events. From community and guerilla gardening projects, to art installations and pop-up restaurants in inspiring venues, just about anything goes for the Chelsea Fringe, as long as it asks us to reconsider our ideas on what gardens and landscapes, flowers and plants can be about. There are over 200 events taking place in and around London – PLUS - if you're not in London look out for a selection of events taking place at regional locations.
