Log Wall at RHS Tatton Park Show


Log Wall at RHS Tatton Park Show

Thought I would submit this for inclusion in the Walls/Garden Fences ideas section. The owner tried to sell it to me for £1,600.00 - yeah, dream on matey!!!

I would want one a lot longer than that one for that price, who did he think he was kidding eh Muddy! I do like it though, very clever idea, hope you had a good day, have you got any more pictures to post for us all to see please.

Isn't that lovely though? Did you see Carol Klein in her white boots at all Muddy? I watched the half hour show last night and thought it looked lovely . . . . .

I really liked it and thought it was a great idea - I'd have one, but not at that price! The only other photo I've got Oliveoil, is my three companions drinking Pimms - my hands were too full with plants and Pimms to take photos. Weak excuse I know, but true!
I didn't see Carol Klein all day Shirley, which is a shame 'cos I'm a big fan. However, I was unfortunate enough to catch sight of Joe Swift in football shorts and now I'm scarred for life . . . lol! ;-))

Its wonderful Mark perhaps he could nt graps lograthems in maths at school lol yea that was a weak excuse, I notice you did nt come and pick me up to go, I would of flounted my blooms at him then charged him for looking then we would of got the fences for nothing .

That is a great wall...but will pass on the price..Lucky you going to Tatton..somewhere I have always wanted to visit..I have been there,but not to the show..maybe next year..:o)

Thanks Louise and Paul. Amy, I bet your brother wishes he'd seen it too - could've expanded the business between you!
Shirley - he's a naughty boy!
Bloomer, it is a great day out.
Sixpence . . . if only I'd known . . . lol! ;-))

Boo hoo;) can't get up to Tatton like we used to go, in a big family group, with a couple of children in pushchairs. I found it much more enjoyable than struggling to see exhibits at Chelsea.....only 5 foot tall. Always had a Pimms at Chelsea......best part of the show....hic. I enjoyed the TV programmes. Liked Carol Kleins herbaceous border dress too.

Hope you enjoyed it, i'm going to Southport in August, there's something about southport flower show i like. I'm going to book it with the coach firm i go with, not sure what day to go as they have 3 different days.

23 Jul, 2011

 

I enjoyed Southport show too Carol,but it's a long time since we went..

23 Jul, 2011

 

If only we could guarantee a 'sunny' day when we book things eh Carol! I like Southport Flower Show too and only live half a mile away so I'm able to decide by what the weather's doing when I wake up! ;-))

Thats true, every garden show i've been to this year its rained;(

I love the wall made from wood and the insects would love it too for hibernating in. It must have taken some putting together, hence the price, but if you had the time and strength you could have a go and make one. Saw Tatton show on the television. Looks like a good day out.

It is a lovely feature and I would have a go at making one if I had the space (and the back strength!).
If you ever get the chance to visit the show Lindak, you wouldn't be disappointed. :-)

Muddy
that wall looks like the one GOY member< <treesandthings> had a hand in building if so there should be a good discount she has pictures of it posted.

25 Jul, 2011

 

Thank you Bjs, I hadn't seen that. I wonder if it was the same designers? You know what they say . . . Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Look out for one in a garden near you! ;-))

Love that wall, wonder how long it would last?? and the price!!!!!! Lol.

27 Jul, 2011

 

20 years ago Grandmage, I would definitely have had a go at making one - I had more money and a good back then! ;-))

27 Jul, 2011

 

Know what you mean Muddy, at our stage/age in life you think twice about spending that much and even if you could you have to think about the old bones!! Lol. it is nice though.

Someone should get the people who make photographic printed table coverings to do a 'log wall' version. All you would need then would be an eyelet punch and some wire and stretchers.......the bees wouldn't like it and it might be a bit naff. No mess or sawdust or heaving into position....just a thought.

looks gorgeous but i would look even better on my wood burner :D

29 Jul, 2011

 

Oh PPFB - you Philistine! . . . lol ;-))
