Country Life; Celebrating Chelsea Barracks Spring Fair

Last month, COUNTRY LIFE hosted a celebration of both the Chelsea Barracks Spring Fair and the publication of The Gardener’s Palette by Jo Thompson, the garden and landscape designer who curated a series of talks that was one of the highlights of the inaugural event.

The latter featured some of the most inspirational figures in British gardening, including Charlotte Harris of Harris Bugg Studio, Bridget Elworthy and Henrietta Courtauld of The Land Gardeners, Shane Connolly, Jekka McVicar, Emma Cochran-Patrick of The Prince’s Foundation, as well as two talks by Jo Thompson. Coinciding with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the fair offered plenty of inspiration to anyone interested in this consuming subject.
