Chelsea Flower Show
The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is back, with an unfamiliar date, this week and we are delighted to be working with a number of designers at the world’s most prestigious flower show.
Adam Woolcott and Jonathan Smith (The Grey Gardeners) have created a garden to celebrate 90 years of British guide dog partnerships with an emotive, wildflower garden. Ferns and dark foliage plants feature and are contrasted with colourful meadow planting, predominantly of British native species, including our Practical Native Mix Instant Hedge. With its dog-friendly planting, this is a simple but striking and memorable garden.
Multi award-winning garden designer Paul Hervey Brookes has mentored five newly qualified designers for this new category. Targeting the increasing number of people choosing to use containers to maximise their outdoor space at home, and those who rent and want to take their gardens with them when they move home. Each garden is just 4m x 3m, enclosed by Practical Beech Instant Hedge, a gravel or slate floor and include repurposed IBC containers.
The Hot Tin Roof Garden designed by Ellie Edkins is inspired by a life lived by the beach, but designed for an urban area.
Pop Street Garden by John McPherson is a vibrant, playful garden, inspired by pop art and jump-starting the transition from ‘lockdown to on-the-town
The IBC Pocket Forest designed by Sara Edwards and is reminiscent of Milan’s Bosco Verticale, an urban pocket forest and haven for wildlife
A Tranquil Space in the City by Japanese designer Mika Misawa evokes a sense of tranquillity an autumn seasonal celebration and a way of contemplating life
The Stolen Soul Garden from Anna Dabrowska-Jaudi Human emotions are given form in this garden, which seeks to draw attention to ‘invisible’ mental health issues.
