After our award winning debut at The RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May 2010 I am particularly excited that we have been invited back again for the 2011 show. This year's show could be even better for the Ethel Gloves brand in the UK with a great new position half way up Eastern Avenue at the junction with the Sweetingham Steps (the route down to the bandstand) and opposite Crossway and Sweetingham Way.

Ethel Gloves' parent company in the USA, Mechanix Wear have decided to build on last year's success with a modified stand design to allow for maximum impact on this new corner position. We will also be launching an exciting new range of gloves in fabrics licensed from the Victoria & Albert Museum as part of their 'The Cult of Beauty' exhibition featuring fabric designs from the aesthetic movement in Britain (1860 - 1900). I will blog about these gloves in future weeks.

This year's Chelsea Flower Show promises to be a classic with the return of Cleve West, one of my favourite garden designers (and a guest blogger on this site) and a 'must see' for any Chelsea visitor. Also showing a garden at Chelsea 2011 are our friends at Bulldog Tools with their first ever garden; designed by RHS show regular, John Wheatley.

I will be back with more postings on developments as the date of the Chelsea Flower Show draws nearer (and more musings on garden tools)!
