Flower Shows 2018 focusing on Instant Hedges
Congratulations to everyone at the June Flower Shows, Practicality Brown proudly supplied instant hedges to:
- The Brewin Dolphin Installation designed by Paul Hervey-Brookes won People’s Choice at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show
- Inspiration in the Raw designed by Peter Cowell awarded Gold Medal at BBC Gardeners’ World Live
Inspired by a past landscape of the Chatsworth Estate, this conceptual garden echoes a ‘lost’ village that once stood in the shadow of Chatsworth House before being removed to make way for Capability Brown’s famous landscape. The planting references the indigenous landscape combining native plants with decorative varieties introduced in later years.
The garden focuses on using natural materials to create a more peaceful area to live in the garden. With an emphasis on recycling and reusing materials, this garden caters for a family, the garden is divided into sections by sliding barn doors. At the rear of the garden there is a dedicated play area with rope swing and playhouse, meanwhile, parents can entertain in the free-form concrete seating and dining area or relax in a quiet corner.
This garden was awarded a Gold Medal by the judges at the BBC Gardeners’ World Live. We supplied Practical Instant Native Mix Hedge for this garden.
At RHS Hampton Court, we are supported three out of the four Lifestyle Gardens, as well as a trade exhibit.
