I hope you’ve had a great week…
Twitter has been buzzing with tweets about the RHS Chelsea Flower Show which takes place next week. It’s such a great way for everyone to share their experiences during the build-up to the show.
There have been quite a few videos too. On the RHS Chelsea Flower Show website, you’ll find videos from garden designers Jo Thompson, Andy Sturgeon, Arne Maynard, Chris Beardshaw and Show Manager, Alex Denman…documenting the last couple of weeks. So, do pop over and take a look.
Here’s what I’ve been up to this week…
Out & about
Monday & Tuesday
Wrote blog posts and dealt with emails.
Signed up for Holly Becker from Decor8’s Blogging Your Way 2.0 course. I took the first version of this online class in October 2010 and found it so useful. Here’s Holly below…
I don’t know if you remember that I attended the RHS Conference ‘Horticulture: A Career to be Proud Of’ last month? Here’s a blog post about the day.
Well, whilst I was there, I was interviewed and on Wednesday, I was sent a link to a short video about the event. I’m very flattered to be included in it…
Wrote a draft for a magazine article, blog posts and dealt with emails.
Booked on to a networking event being run by Stylist Magazine. Looks like it’ll be an amazing evening with a panel of female entrepreneurs including:
- Isabelle Palmer of The Balcony Gardener
- Nikki Tibbles of Wild at Heart
- Romy Fraser, founder of Neal’s Yard Remedies
- Garden designer Kate Gould
- Sophie Cornish, founder of notonthehighstreet.com
Then, in the afternoon, I wrote blog posts and dealt with emails.
- RHS Chelsea Flower Show press releases
- Garden Media Guild Magazine
