Whether you are a passionate gardener or a philistine towards the art of horticulture, it is hard not to be inspired by the magical miniature worlds and oceans of colour that can be found The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which was established in 1913.
I do not profess to be a gardener, but my Mum is and when we were very small she started to create a paradise at home in Donegal. Enclosed within the walls of an old kitchen garden, this vivid creation has evolved over time into a sea of vibrant colour, vegetable ridges, secret paths and quiet corners. As children it was an idyllic space to explore and play. Many happy hours spent finding bugs and cultivating our own, albeit rather unsuccessful, little garden plots.

For my own part I love spending time in gardens, they are a place of beauty, inspiration and calm. Every spring summer floral prints feature in our collection, paying homage to the wonders of nature.
