Britain in Bloom

Now I’m no Charlie Dimmock, but even I couldn’t help but be amazed by all the awe-inspiring exhibitions at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. Normally I have trouble keeping weeds alive, but with a sunny Bank Holiday weekend forecast, I have made it my mission to transform my garden from a jungle in to a haven.


You couldn’t really avoid The Chelsea Flower Show this week if you tried. Not that you’d want to, with its immaculate show gardens, manicured lawns and highly imaginative displays there was plenty to inspire even the most novice of gardeners. Whetman Pinks even managed to create a cocktail glass of Dianthus. Cocktails and flowers, what’s not to love about that? Perhaps I won’t aim quite that high, and although my knowledge on plants is fairly limited, the one thing I do know about is how to look after my skin properly after a hard day wrestling a garden folk.


Firstly, the Organic Surge Gardeners Hand Cream is not just your run-of-the-mill hand cream. It’s made with a quick drying formula, so that you don’t have to have wet hands when you put on your gardening gloves. As well as a moisturiser, it also acts as an emollient, so it has a protective barrier for when you are working outside. Not only that, but the smell is just incredible, Lime Basil and Rosemary are a wonderful combination.

When you have finished a hard day in the garden and the lure of a G&T is just too overwhelming, I would recommend that you rinse off the majority of the dirt and soil with the Organic Surge Lavender Meadow Hand Wash. This has a gentle but effective formula, and is even kind to my eczema prone hands. Then I would apply the Gardeners Hand Scrub. This really works wonders for hard working hands, when the mud and earth has worked its way into the creases of your hands. The gentle scrubbing action of natural olive seed helps buff away ingrained dirt and roughened skin, while the enriched blend of plant extracts and moisturising shea butter will return your hands back to their former soft selves. Not only that, but they will be clean clean clean!
 

 

 


But please don’t take my word for it. We’ve created a special edition bundle (with a special discount price!) for any of those intrepid gardeners who are, like me, planning on spending their bank holiday in their wellies. It even includes the Lavender Meadow Foaming Bath, so that you can relax after your hard slog in the garden and reward yourself with a G&T, or a nice flowery cocktail....

Thank you to Whetman Pinks for the images
