Into the Rhizosphere

Journey beneath the surface into the soil. See our roots at work, restoring planetary health.

This year, Natoora are taking you on a journey into the rhizosphere to show you just how vital cover crops are to restoring soil health and building a harmonious ecosystem. We were inspired by Melilot – our regenerative organic farm in Cornwall – where we are cover-cropping with a biodiverse combination of over 30 varieties of pasture plants.

They could have displayed blooms in their window, but by uprooting them it would cut short their useful lives. Instead, they chose to illustrate how extraordinary they are, beyond what the eye can see.

The voyage of the bee

Celebrate Chelsea in Bloom with a feast from local institution, The Cadogan Arms who, alongside their beautiful display, are sharing the story of the voyage of the bee.  

Indulge in two courses with a glass of Ferrari Trento sparkling wine, the grapes of which are pollinated by bees, for £30, or three courses with a glass of wine for £35, where three natural biodynamic wines can be chosen from.

Dishes include Fresh Porthilly oysters dressed with bee pollen and a sweet cicely dressing; a member of the celery family, cicely is very popular with Cellophane Bees, who visit the flowers for nectar, inadvertently covering themselves with the plant’s white pollen, which aids cross-pollination and Bavette of Cumbrian Beef, from cows that graze on bee-pollinated clover, is served with mash potatoes, which are pollinated almost exclusively by the vibratious Bumblee, and roasted chestnut mushrooms. Desserts include The Cadogan Arms’ famous Strawberry Trifle, chosen to highlight the important work that Honeybees do in pollinating strawberries, and seasonal berries served with elderflower gel.

And, for those of you prefer a cocktail (or two), The Cadogan Arms has worked with the Chelsea Physic garden, procuring natural waste generated as a by-product of their world-leading plant care, including Aji Mango chillies and Lemon Verbena, which will be used in the creation of a special Chelsea in Bloom cocktail menu.
