Highlights from the 100th Chelsea Flower Show

(5 years ago)
Here’s the latest from London-based editor and resident zoologist, Justine Aw from the 100th RHS Chelsea Flower Show!One of the most incredible aspects of flowers shows like RHS Chelsea is amazing range and breadth of both wild type and cultivated plants. Leaves and flowers come in such a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors and textures and even closely related cultivars can look strikingly different. Yet, cultivated varieties are bred to consistency and this simultaneous diversity and uniformity are highlighted at shows like Chelsea where large stands are filled with nearly identical blooms of each variety.

Joe's Ice Cream

(5 years ago)
A local ice cream with a national following, Joe's Ice Cream has been based in the small town of Mumbles in Wales for nearly 100 years, yet it is so popular that people travel from all over the UK to come and try it for themselves. Joe’s wanted to increase the retail price of their product in supermarkets, but their positioning and packaging was holding them back.
