This year the School of Biological Sciences will be exhibiting my grass-free flower lawn research at the 100th Chelsea Flower Show.
We’ve been anticipating this for quite a while, but it was only the 18th February 2013 that the RHS advised us that they had accepted our exhibit proposal. The original location we applied for was not allocated to us and it’s become a bit of a rush to redesign the exhibit to suit and fit the new location we have been allocated. We are still in the re-design stage, although it seems to be coming together. We could do with knowing who our neighbours at the show will be so we can negotiate borders.
The Head of School and my academic supervisor – Dr Mark Fellowes, has brilliantly conceived a neologism that looks likely to be part of our exhibit title. Be prepared to discover – The New Millawnium: grass-free & full of flowers. I still grin every time I say it.
