Seeds of inspiration

PaoloWe’re not the only people who manage to combine a love of vegetables with a love of music. This is our friend Paolo, from the excellent seed company Franchi Seeds of Italy, who hosted an “accordion open day” at his company’s base near my house on Friday. Paolo collects and restores vintage accordions and somehow his seed warehouse was the perfect setting for his display of beautiful instruments. Unfortunately Dan was busy so couldn’t come and have a go on the accordions, which included one that was used in a Elvis Movie.

Like us, Paolo is taking part in the Chelsea Fringe (as well as having a stand at the Chelsea Flower Show itself). He’s one of a bunch of 50 gardeners being planted knee-deep in soil as part of the Pop Up Foundation’s show in the grounds of Battersea Power Station on Saturday, May 18. He’ll be playing his accordion then too.

Our Chelsea Fringe show is on Saturday, June 8, at Oxford House. You can buy tickets here.
