Snippets of Vita: ‘In Your Garden’ (April 30th, 1950)

“The season for flower shows is now in full swing, and soon the Chelsea Show will open for four days.  But beware. On that first day it will be open to Fellows only, so if you are not a Fellow of the Royal Horticultural Society you will not be able to get in.  It is no use hoping to borrow a Fellow’s ticket, because on this occasion they are not transferable.  On the second day the entrance will cost you 10s., and on the subsequent days, which are cheaper, the crowd will be greater and many of the exhibits will begin to look sorry for themselves after all that time in a hot tent.”
