How Green supply plants for RHS Malvern garden
We’ve been very busy this season with growing plants for RHS show gardens. Our band of merry garden design customers have taken on the challenge of designing, building and planting at some of the countries most prestigious shows!
First up, our good friends Richard and Sam from Twigs garden design based in Sussex approached us to grow for their ‘A Fruity Story’ garden at Malvern. The concept of the garden was based around a realistic, fully functional garden that can inspire people to do the same at home! The emphasis being on cooking, with the installation of a beautiful brick fire kiln.
The planting also tied in nicely, with many herbs, vegetables and soft fruit that could be used directly in conjunction with any cooking done in the garden. Planting was not in the conventional way in lines, but blending in with herbaceous perennials and grasses. To soften the wonderful landscaping, Richard and his team used a wonderful pallet of shade loving plants to under-plant the stunning Betula and Acers.
They deservedly won a Silver-gilt medal which is a great achievement guys! With several celebrities including chef James Martin enjoying the garden and a slot on Gardeners World last Friday, I’m sure Twigs will go from strength to strength!
Next week, check out our post on how our growing for the Chelsea Flower Show went!
