As we approach the last show of the season, Dorset County Show on the 2nd and 3rd of September near Dorchester, I am reflecting on the shows and coverage we have had this year so far. Plankbridge has featured in several articles, including English Home magazine, the Telegraph in the Spring, the Sunday Times and may others. Today, as I write, we are going to be in the Saturday Daily Telegraph magazine, in the Best of British feature which is fantastic. It is always with a certain amount of trepidation and exitement that you open the article and see, and then read, what is said about Plankbridge.

Previous shows this year started with RHS Chelsea, then the Royal Bath and West and the New Forest Show last week. We enjoy attending shows, seeing old customers and meeting new ones. It's alot of commitment to do shows, but we enjoy them.

As we move towards the Autumn we begin to plan for next year, and also open our minds to innovation so that the business is constantly moving forward year on year.

Its a bit cliched I know but it's amazing how quickly a year goes, particularly when a big milestone is Chelsea. We did our shepherd's hut Artisan garden, with Woolcott and Smith, back in 2012, and apart from a couple of years have been exhibiting there with a tradestand ever since. We like our pitch on stand AR586 which is in the Raneleigh gardens section, on the way to the Artisan gardens. It's not a big show ground, unlike most other shows, so its very likely you will find us if you are going.

This year we have a bit of a wildlife gardens theme, and Dorset Wildlife Trust helped with two bug hotels, made with children on a Forest School day. We also have a prize draw, with the prize of a wild bird hamper provided by The Really Wild Bird Food company.

The show hut has a home office, art studio, wildlife viewing feel to it, and we will also have photos to show the versatility of the shepherd's hut. So, a busy week ahead, just need to set it all up over the weekend ready for Monday. See you there if you are going, or do watch the BBC coverage which is always excellent.
