Show Garden

We have supplied Yew Practical Instant Hedge™ and Pine trees for Sadie May Stowell’s Oregon Show Garden which showcases the natural beauty of the state of Oregon, including wildflower planting, natural crisp clear waterfalls and forest planting. The planting is natural in appearance and focuses on pollinating plants and flowers.

A Four Seasons Sanctuary created by Tim Jennings included our Hornbeam Elements and Purple Beech Practical Instant Hedge™. Combining striking modern design features with traditional materials and naturalistic ‘drift’ planting, this is a garden to be enjoyed by humans and wildlife alike. This garden has a strong stylish aesthetic that also provides the natural, seasonal wild space to sustain a diverse kaleidoscope of life
