Another conceptual garden - the subterraneum planting representing 'the precious content within ourselves which we have struggled to discover'.

Concreation


Sim Flemons & John Warland designed this garden to show the battle man has with nature - with nature always pushing through cracks in the concrete, taking a foothold in deposits of windswept dirt.

Carnivorous Plant Garden at HCPFS




Monstruosa was a conceptual garden at HCPFS. It refers to the silvery ectoplasmic base, which is meant to represent an ET visitor. It is colonising the carnivorous plants 'implanting its own offspring inside their tissues before erupting into a more powerful biomachine'. The designers are Metagardens of London.

Tea in the Garden


How about those cupcakes!
This tea was set in the Sadolin Nature to Nurture Garden, designed by Philippa Pearson. It won a Silver Gilt Medal, which may not be the top, but it is amazing to be awarded any of the coveted RHS Medals as they are difficult to achieve. Only the best are successful.


This shows Philippa Pearson's colourful wildflower planting.

Royal Guests


There are no end to the talents of the Royal Horticultural Society - they managed to get Henry VIII and his six wives to attend Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and all of them had their heads in the right place. (none carrying it under their arm.)
