In just 7 days I'll be setting up for the first big flower show of the year - RHS Spring Festival at Malvern's Three Counties Showground.
I'll be positioned on a corner at stand No. 151 - at the top end of the showground, opposite the antiques hall, facing the nurseries. My pitch will be split in 2 halves, each giving you a great display from my Cretan & Italian terracotta pots.
I'm excited to confirm that a number of my pots have been used by the charity Perennial to contribute towards the design of David Lewis' The Lasketts show garden. Here you will have the chance to see an antique urn and some Italian planters from the Yard bursting full. The garden itself is a bold design, attempting to bring a slice of Sir Roy Strong's garden from Much Birch to the showground. No easy feat and the team have worked tirelessly over the past 2 weeks to bring it to life.
With Malvern swallowing up a great deal of time and energy, Tom's Yard will be closed for appointments from Tuesday 7th - Friday 17th. Web orders placed over that period will be sent out as a priority for receipt W/C 19th of May.
I can only apologise for any inconvenience this delay may cause. I'm only one man managing this business and I'm playing it safe by putting 4 days aside after the festival to allow for dispatching orders, getting stock back from Malvern & recuperating before my next Plant Fair on the 17th in Wiltshire. No rest for the wicked!
If you need me, I may be hard to get hold of when at the show from the Thursday - Sunday. I'll do my darned best to get back to any enquiries as soon as possible.
Hope to see you there!
Thomas Pearson
