Back from Chelsea

A highlight of our year - the Chelsea Flower Show - and what a year it was, apart from some rain on Saturday and temperatures a little too hot for plant comfort on Press Day, it was the most perfect Chelsea weather imaginable.

We were delighted to win a Certificate of Merit for the "outstanding presentation" of our stand - here's a pic of our old potting shed, complete with about 50 years of genuine dirt on the window!

This is the view of the marvellously tranquil Laurent Perrier garden taken from our stand - not a bad place to work for a week?

The Royal family like to visit the show - this year HRH the Duke of Edinburgh stopped by our stand and we had a little chat about tools - I can confirm that he is extremely charming! Here is a picture of HRH the Queen, clearly enjoying the Show.

As ever it was lovely to meet so many of our customers - here are just a couple of the comments we received:

"They are fabulous tools and I've been pleased with them all - just great!"

"Every year we come to Chelsea and buy one of your tools. We've come to realise we can rely on your tools"

It was especially great to hear from the lady whose town garden isn't big enough for a shed, but who has all her Burgon & Ball tools on display, hanging on hooks under the eves of her porch!

And finally - here are a couple of snaps of breakdown - I wonder where the wheelchair occupant has been turfed out and left?
Great tee shirt....
