"Dear Dave, now things have calmed down since Chelsea, I thought it was about time I put pen to paper to say a big thank you for all your help with the show. The garden seemed to go down very well. I was very pleased with the result, as I hope you were. I do hope you enjoyed the show. Thanks again for all your help."

Willerby Landscapes commercial director John Melmoe had nothing but praise for plant supplier Kelways, which had just two days' notice to supply the trees. Sourcing expert Dave Root had to find plant material that would survive in an indoor unheated space that can get very hot in the sun.
"It was challenging to say the least. Dave Root loves his plants and he gives his all. They lived the dream for two years sourcing plants from around the world, bartering with people in Italy over a bottle of wine for plants they did not want to sell."

Look forward to working with you on other suitably madcap schemes"
