Collateral for Chelsea Flower Show 2013

Creative direction, design & typography: David Davidopoulos

Illustration: Irene Laschi

Rilke returned to the Chelsea Flower Show this year to create the garden guide and promotional collateral for the Arthritis Research UK Garden. This year the garden was created by award-winning UK gardener Chris Beardshaw, who is perhaps best known for his work on the BBC’s long-running television series, Gardeners’ World. We teamed up with the incredibly talented illustrator Irene Laschi to realise a vision of the garden that was as vivid and distinct as the garden itself. Do your eyes a favour and check out Irene’s behance profile (http://www.behance.net/irenelaschi). Her work is smoking hot. The garden has been awarded a gold medal and won the peoples choice for best garden in show.

8 vegetables that you can regrow again and again.

Scallions

You can regrow scallions by leaving an inch attached to the roots and place them in a small glass with a little water in a well-lit room.

Garlic

When garlic begins to sprout, you can put them in a glass with a little water and grow garlic sprouts. The sprouts have a mild flavor than garlic and can be added to salads, pasta and other dishes.

Bok Choy

Bok choy can be regrown by placing the root end in water in a well-lit area. In 1-2 weeks , you can transplant it to a pot with soil and grow a full new head.

Carrots

Put carrot tops in a dish with a little water. Set the dish in a well-lit room or a window sill.  You’ll have carrot tops to use in salads. 

Basil

Put clippings from basil with 3 to 4-inch stems in a glass of water and place it in direct sunlight. When the roots are about 2 inches long, plant them in pots to and in time it will grow a full basil plant.

Celery

Cut off the base of the celery and place it in a saucer or shallow bowl of warm water in the sun. Leaves will begin to thicken and grow in the middle of the base, then transfer the celery to soil. 

Romaine Lettuce

Put romaine lettuce stumps in a 1/2 inch of water. Re-water to keep water level at 1/2 inch. After a few days, roots and new leaves will appear and you can transplant it into soil.

Cilantro

The stems of cilantro will grown when placed in a glass of water. Once the roots are long enough, plant them in a pot in a well-lit room. You will have a full plant in a few months.
