Inspiration at Tatton Park RHS Show 2015
A brilliantly inspirational show; here are a selection of my favourites with ideas to use for your garden.
Leon Davis – quantum of light features bands of planting (a definite trend) radiating out from a central pool. A solid blobbery of clipped buxus and strong steel columns providing a bold backdrop to a mix of more gentle planting including my favourite stipa tenuissima.
Sharon Hockenhull’s Light catcher, a great structure within the lightest, fuzziest planting including grasses brezia media, stipa tenuissima, deshampsia cespitosa, and scabious, achillea, allchemilla, salvia & allium sphaerocephalon, all in the delicate dappled shade of silver birch.
Josh Chapman – ‘The Perfect Lawn. A bold timber structure provided a focal point and shelter for the garden along with copper paneled cubes topped with lawn for seating. The planting of bronze grasses complimented the timber and copper to give a very distinctive design. I loved the epimedium planted under the timber benches.
