Actress Emilia Fox unveils Prince Harry’s charity show garden at Chelsea Flower Show
British actress Emilia Fox, star of Silent Witness, The Pianist and Merlin, unveiled Prince Harry’s charity show garden, The B&Q Sentebale Forget-Me-Not Garden, at the centenary RHS Chelsea Flower Show today.
The garden has been created to help raise awareness of the Prince’s charity, Sentebale which means ‘forget-me-not’ in Sesotho (the language spoken in Lesotho) and was set up in 2006 in memory of his mother and the Prince Seeiso of Lesotho’s mother Queen Mamohato Bereng Seeiso.
Commenting on the garden, actress Emilia Fox says: “There is something so quintessentially British about the Chelsea Flower Show and I am delighted to help launch The B&Q Sentebale Forget-me-not Garden this week. The garden is very special as it brings together the emotional link of mothers and their children, the bond of true friendship between Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso and embraces the spirit of remembrance, while the plants chosen give everyone the chance to enjoy the spirit of Chelsea during its landmark centenary year and raise funds and awareness for this worthwhile charity.”
Landscape and garden designer, Jinny Blom, who designed the gardens at Temple Guiting Manor, has designed the garden to reflect the landscape of Lesotho and the country’s problems. The unique blanket designs worn by the Basotho people, their unusual circular thatched homes and dramatic landscape are all mirrored in the garden.
The garden took 19 days to complete on site and has been nearly a year in the making with a dedicated team of 79 gardeners, designers, builders and growers working round the clock to deliver a show stopping garden.
Jinny says; “Lesotho has a fascinating landscape and culture that confounds one’s expectations of what makes a country ‘African’. Lesotho’s climate is akin to that of Wales with which it is twinned, cool and damp, hence the need for wearing thick blankets. The garden at Chelsea Flower Show is a contemporary evocation of the mountains, round houses and wonderfully unusual blanket designs that are the national costume. I am hoping to express not only the beauty and rich culture yet also the inaccessibility and fragility of the country. Some of the native flora, such as Nemesia and Silene fimbriata, will be known to British gardeners.”

I’m happy to announce that we have a new site design I thought it was time we leave the ‘dark, winter-likely Silent Witness’ theme behind and change for spring/summer The wordpress theme was made my friend Sara who did an amazing job using these gorgeous photos of Millie! It’s such a lovely photoshoot, isn’t it? In other news, I’ve changed the site’s title to ‘an English rose’ which I hope you’ll like too!
The gallery theme will be updated in the following days as well… Have a nice Sunday/Mother’s Day everyone
AWARD-winning actress Emilia Fox joined David Caves as one of St Albans’ most historic streets was turned into a crime scene today (Thursday) for filming of thriller series Silent Witness.
Acting as forensic experts in the popular BBC series which attracts over seven million viewers in the UK, the pair were being filmed at the bottom of Fishpool Street, near St Michael’s Manor Hotel.
The scene involved armed police and an ambulance.
Diana Sailor-Allen, who lives on Fishpool Street, said it was “very unusual” to see the road turned into a film set.
The Silent Witness fan added: “It’s quite nice, and they have picked a great day weather-wise. The residents got loads of notice about the filming.
“And they should encourage more filming on this street as it is such a nice road, and full of character.”
There were about 80 people on the set, with passersby stopping to watch the drama unfold asked to “keep it quiet” during filming of the action-packed scene.
More information will be published in next Thursday’s Herts Advertiser.
I’m currently working on completing the gallery once more and have added a few more HQ photos of Emilia attending two events this year. Thanks Kalina for the donation!
