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.

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.
