OK not really, but after seeing the photo (left) the thought did cross my mind.
After pointing people in the direction of the Guardian’s gardening blog I thought it would only be right (no pun intended!) to balance up the political commentary by seeing if one of the other daily papers ran their own gardening blog too. That’s when I stumbled upon this photo of the ‘world’s largest hanging basket‘ (apparently) in The Telegraph which was installed to advertise a new boutique hotel in London.
While the paper doesn’t have a blog there is quite a useful gardening section. As you might expect it has an in-depth feature on the best Wellingtons and gardening style with Trinny and Susannah. Oh, I shouldn’t laugh … and yet!
As for the basket itself, it’s an impressive site. But the hotel claims it will change its decor in harmony with the seasons so surely this should be a semi-bare mud bath with a couple of ropey cyclamen struggling to give some colour, rather than the overflowing colour-fest they’ve come up with here. I should be a consultant me.
