Plant Heritage 2012
We were asked by the RHS and Plant Heritage to design and build a central feature display which shows where our plants have originated from in the 5 Continents. This was a real challenge researching to get every species correct for each Continent and put into a display measuring 14 m by 3m at the widest. It is quite incredible to see how many of our nation's favourite plants have travelled thousands of miles over the last few centuries and have come into British cultivation. The display was awarded a Silver Lindley Medal.
The marquee was opened by Allys Fowler and seven collection holders from the Uk's 650 collection holders had stands which displayed their plants , sharing tips and offering advice.
