Joe Swift at Chelsea Flower Show 2015

On Monday after judging the BBC came to film Joe Swift doing a 2 minute link between ‘water in the outside Show Gardens’ and ‘water as shown in the Floral Pavilion’. As we are still the only Nursery showing aquatic plants in the Pavilion we were delighted to be able to be featured.

He picked out the 3 Typha plant groups on one side of the exhibit to talk about – the Typha lugdunenis (Typha gracilis as it was previously), Typha latifolia Variegata and the miniature Typha minima.

He also carefully described that each water plant although being in the same species likes to have a certain depth of water over its crown or basket top and that this can be vital to each plants survival. A vital message!
