Paranoid about being type cast at the RSH Chelsea Flower ShowLeave a Comment
Our three show gardens at RSH Chelsea Flower Show, were, shall we say, all Wild and Wonderful.
Plus, one of my most prestigious private clients made the remark to me that, ‘if she had seen our Gold medal, Chelsea Fenland Alchemist garden, before we started work for her, we would not have got past her front gate’. (This lady was brought up in the fens, but, had a very precise and orderly approach).
Now, when the opportunity arose to design the principal garden in the Royal marquee, at the 2010 Sandringham Flower show, we needed to do something a bit more contemporary. When I asked my designers to do this, they came up with the Industrial Evolution garden, cleverly giving it a Victorian twist to satisfy Prince Charles.
