The above image shows Jo Thompson's caravan 'Doris' which was a true hit at the show. Doris, although vintage, is incredibly modern with her shiny exterior and works so well as an alternative to a garden room or shed. Jo's 'Celebration of Caravanning' for The Caravan Club also included a gorgeous little wooden dog kennel (just visible on the left of the above image) with a green roof that included Alpine Strawberries. The kennel had it's own down-pipe that harvests rainwater, which then flows in to a dog bowl. A brilliant idea.
Common Farm Flowers, also provided the cut flowers for Jo Thompson's garden.
'Homebase Teenage Cancer Trust Garden' had several features that I adored and this stone water feature (above) was my favourite. I like how the water rises up through the stone and flows rather informally along its surface before trickling over in to the rusty edged pool.
