Grandpa Haxnicks tells of Adventures in a Sunbubble•
Posted on 6 October 2016
A Haxnicks Sunbubble was originally designed as an instant pop-up greenhouse, but we had not envisaged that it might become so much more than that. Some people have been extremely creative with their Sunbubbles and I would like to share the inspiration.
Early this year our good friend, the The Potty Gardener, was tasked with growing runner beans in time for a display at the RHS Chelsea Flower show. The beans grew in Vigoroot pots and climbed up strings inside her Sunbubble. With maximum daylight exposure in a cosy, moist environment the beans flowered early. They produced great looking, healthy runner beans by mid May. Perfect timing for Chelsea.
One customer sent in this picture of a Haxnicks Sunbubble extension to his tent. A brilliant idea! Due to the great British weather, campers are often forced into the gloom of their tents. Now they can take a portable conservatory and enjoy the daylight.
Then there were the festival goers who were thrilled that they could easily spot their Sunbubble in a sea of tents. Although they did have to remember that all in-tent activities were on view!
But the most creative use of a Sunbubble this year has to go to Alice Maddicot who used it as travelling pop-up art studio. Touring Somerset in September, Alice invited members of the public to create work inspired by the landscape in a new location each day. You can read more about Alice's artistic adventure with a Sunbubble here.
Finally, we are not sure what is going on inside here. A pop-up circus perhaps? Goodbye for now, Grandpa Haxnicks
