Show Gardens"Romance in the Ruins" Gardener’s World Live

Designed on behalf of Wyevale Garden Centres for the 50th Anniversary at Gardeners World Live, this garden won a Gold Medal and Best in Show.

Following a love of castles and asked to create a romantic show garden, this design encompassed a partially tumbled down walled garden within the ruins of a castle. The castle had been neglected but was now being carefully tended and slowly brought back to life. A wildflower meadow flanked two sides of a central walkway filled with aromatic flowers including old varieties of climbing roses. The back tower of the castle featured a small waterfall and bespoke iron benches invited visitors to sit and enjoy the space.
