Mid-Somerset Show 2014
The highlight to our local calendar is the annual Mid-Somerset Show in Shepton Mallet, returning on Sunday 17th August 2014.
As usual Protek is sponsoring this great event organised by the Mid-Somerset Agricultural Society. Reputed to be the largest free show (for pedestrians) in Europe, crowds will be entertained with a plethora of agricultural competitions including livestock, horse events, a dog show, floral displays, classic cars and not forgetting all of the wonderful local produce, the highlight of which are the cheese and cider competitions!
To join in with all of the local fun you can find the showground just off Cannards Grave Road, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, BA4 5RT. Check for details and the latest news via Twitter @MidSomersetShow
Hampton Palace Flower Show
The RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show truly is one of the greatest gardening events of the year. A much larger site than Chelsea gives a sense of space and allows a wonderful display of creative and diverse show gardens, plus all manner of garden products.
At this years event Protek’s woodstains featured at two sites. Expo Floors are specialists in exhibition flooring appearing at numerous major events. They were responsible for the flooring at the RHS Invisible Garden using Protek Decking Stain in Nut Brown to give a natural-looking dark finish that complemented the atmosphere created in this exhibit.
Treating a trellis with woodstain not only prolongs its lifespan but also creates a stunning backdrop to planting.
Two of my roses were in need of some support and as they grow up against the house wall a trellis was the obvious support solution. The first rose, a David Austin Ferdinand Pichard has lovely large pink striped blooms so I chose Protek Royal Exterior Rose Pink woodstain for its trellis.
The second rose, David Austin Rambling Rector has a glorious display of delicate light yellow blooms that would be complimented well by Protek Royal Exterior Lemon Yellow.
This month's colours – SEPTEMBER 2014
As autumn begins there is still plenty of time to enjoy the garden before the weather turns. It’s the perfect month for making sure that external timber is ready for the winter months by carrying out some essential maintenance.
Check and repair all timber giving it a good clean down to remove any dirt and algae. When it’s fully dry and there’s a good spell of weather apply a maintenance coat of wood stain to repel the autumn showers and keep it looking great all through the winter.
Hot colours this month are warm and bright ranging from coffee tones to bright citrus shades and enriching purples.
Charmouth Beach Huts given the Royal Treatment
Following the storm devastation at the start of 2014, the parish council at the picturesque and historic village of Charmouth in Dorset set about repairing some of the damage to their coastline.
On a stretch of the beach renowned for fossil hunting, a strip of new beach huts were supplied & erected by Beaminster Sheds treated in Protek’s Royal Exterior Soft Mocha, blending naturally within the coastal defences.
Front Door Makeover
The first job was to remove all of the old paint from the door and surrounding panelling. There were years worth of paint layers smothered on so removal wasn’t easy. We used a combination of chemical paint stripper, heat gun and power sanders. Four (very long and dirty) days later the paint was off and the bare wood sanded back to a nice finish.
PROTEK SETS CHELSEA ALIGHT
My first trip to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show was a spectacular one with a dramatic thunderstorm, stunning garden designs and great champagne! After perusing the Artisan Gardens and strolling down Main Venue we came to the Gold Medal winning show garden designed by Hugo Bugg for the Royal Bank of Canada, sitting on the corner of Main Avenue and Pavilion Way. Its neighbour was the 3 Star Tradestand Award-winning exhibit by Modular105, returning to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for the 7th time.
Garden Chair Makeover
At the back of my shed sat a very old and dirty garden chair that hadn’t seen the light of day for some time. It was still structurally sound and with a little love was transformed in to a thing of fun and beauty.
After a quick sand to remove the muck from the bamboo slats the chair was decorated using a selection of blue sample pots from the Protek Royal Exterior range. Now it looks great and will last for years!
