    big green egg barbeque at Chelsea 2014 Big Green Egg makes the crème de la crème of barbecues. They also (as far as I’m concerned) made the very best, knocked-my-socks-off, took-my-hat- off trade stand at Chelsea. Fashioned from three containers, with one stacked on top of the other two it became far greater than the sum of its parts. It had a New York cool, rusty industrial vibe with large cutout windows, a generous staircase and a fantastic curvaceous wooden table cut from a single plank of wood. The planting was great too – I loved the geranium palmatum and iris sibirica against the powder blue container, the saxifrages on the table and the incredible settled feel of the whole place. Unlike the show gardens they have mere days, not weeks to put it all together.
